22' 20 digital video by the Otolith Group with Richard Couzins, commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and the MIR programme

Microgravity's reorientation of the relations of humans to space, perception to coordination and vision to motor activity implies the reconfiguration of the coordinates of visual language. The essay film Otolith is narrated by a paleoanthropologist born and raised off-world in an agravic future; a woman at home in zero g. Unable, like all future humans, to return to Earth, she has devoted a decade to retrieving, restoring and researching archives of pre-adaptive hominization. By framing the documentary image in terms of scenarios for the future of space habitation, Otolith readjusts the present until it takes on the temporality of the historical ruin.

The Otolith Group (Kodwo Eshun, Anjalika Sagar) have been shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2010.
