In the video "Lost Coordinates" Milne reflects on the idea of perception and codified visions of reality, the sequence of images suggesting rather than describing any specific narrative. All that is left is a silent fragmented world, reduced to pulsating lights, which draws the viewer into a filmed reality but one that is bereft of all coordinates. It feels like a familiar world, but one that disorientates as we search for pointers that would indicate the cities where it was originally filmed. The video proposes the question of what is our reality in this liquid world, and the artist invites us to create the coordinates and to guide ourselves through our own reality, however oeniric or real.
