The footage used in Dissolution (I Know Nothing) composes another form of seascape, assembling fragmented connections through material and time from Congo, Rwanda and Nigeria through the Indian Ocean on a containership to China. Gunpowder, dissolved minerals, blinking LEDs, personal and colonial histories. All that is solid melts into flow.
