Commenting on this tape's enigmatic title, Feingold says: 'This title is a multiple puzzle solved in the viewing. The imaginary, the evocation of global thought, the traditions of endlessness, are amongst the drifts used to this end'. The beginning of 5Dim/Mind consists of a succession of images: a glass of water which has fallen over; goldfish; a volcano; the sea crashing against rocks; divers; the legs of galloping horses; women's legs; a woman surfing; a sphinx and pyramids; a Rubic's cube and so forth. When seen separately or within their original context, these images appear to have nothing to do with each other. But within Feingold's complex montage they assume complex relations and evoke significances that cannot immediately be expressed in words. Objecs, events and sound have been edited into five distinct series of images that resemble each other in terms of theme. As such they could be compared with the parts of a musical composition.
