The Wandering Mind shows macro-lens filmed pictures of some ants toiling and moiling, draging along a piece of fish. Their efforts, without beginning or end, is the only visible action. It is the soundtrack that makes suspension rise or fall. Suddenly the ants are triggered out of view... As if the concentration and attention of the assumed viewer/researcher has evaporated and is focusing on something else. The Wandering Mind is, due to the strong interaction of image and sound, rhytm and title, as mch a reflection on the human mind as an almost surreal impression of nature. Both fields are being pushed to one another, though the enigma is kept intact.
