This is a simple yet uncanny work that focuses on a contemporary still life set into motion. The protracted production process has been wryly attributed by the artist to "sound and editing problems"—odd for a silent, single-image work.
Named for the portion of the human brain that transmits signals between the two hemispheres, Snow’s ambitious new digital feature operates in the manner of Wavelength, situating a wide range of ideas, theories, and observations within the portrait of a quotidian space. The dominant formal device is a peripatetic lateral tracking shot that converts the space of a contemporary office into a looping mobius-strip of desks and workstations—all of which becomes, in Snow’s words, "tableaux of transformation, a tragicomedy of cinematic variables." Connecting with some of the artist’s earliest work, *Corpus Callosum concludes with the resurrection of a charming piece of stick-figure animation, the very first moving-image work of this modern master.
