In a hinterland within the “elsewhere”, a lone character meanders in search of meaning and understanding. Hither and dither doth he wanders reflecting upon all things that came before and all things hereafter. The work is a companion piece to Kötting's latest feature film “Lek And The Dogs” and was shot in the Atacama desert in Chile. Produced to run on a loop in a gallery space, the film exemplifies Köttings ability to take an idea and run with it until it spills over into the expanded cinematic “elsewhere”.
