This highly edited tape of carefully composed images speaks clearly an inner world language of dream space and alchemical ritual. Sturgeon, as male principle, pours, boils, and mixes while enacting a centering diagram, metaphorically connecting various divergent elements to a central bowl with electric cables. From primitive animal urges for the female to a more consciously balanced union of the sexual energies of the self, there is a satisfying summing up of unlikely combinations, into penetrating symbols of a spiritual whole.
