The Enigma of S.A.P.
Music: Andrew James Paterson
Producer: Andrew James Paterson
Sound: Kevin Quain
Categories :FIFA Experimental
The Enigma of S.A.P. is an almost ten-minute non-camera videotape set in a visual arts milieu. S.A.P. is a mysterious new art gallery, and two gentlemen (G & H) are checking it out. G & H, as well as their friends F & J, and also a very genial maitre’d, are heard but not seen. What are seen are the “paintings” on display (the artist’s own Photoshop graphics and/or drawings).
