Does the absence of the right to speak lead to the deficit of attention? The unimportant objects captured in the extra-short video clips are unexpectedly granted the right to speak. The sound of this voice is irregular but well-directed and Hitchcockingly haunting. With only difference that Hitchcock enigmates meaningful details of his films, while we mystified various obscure insignificant elements.
