Symbiopsychotaxiplasm is visual jazz, created through editing and reconfiguration: finalized as an amalgam of footage from four different sources. The production team of Over The Cliff (the film within the film) directed by William Greaves impersonating himself, a production crew filming them as a behind the scenes-esque pursuit, and a third crew recording them, along with footage shot via a fourth camera operated independently by Greaves. Greaves breaks through blackness as merely a visual experience, driving the film’s deterioration of traditional film production techniques culminated as a polyphony of events actively critiquing ideas of authenticity, caricature, and performativity.
