Photographed images of children, adults, and a candle, not charged with any particular psychological weight, are interspersed with rapidly flickering solid colors. The colors appear irregularly and for unpredictable lengths of time, forming a kind of visual field against which the photographed images are seen. Brakhage said that the title referred to thought and memory processes; the color flicker is his visualization of nerves firing. The larger point is that our nervous system creates a "field" that contextualizes our sights, thoughts, and memories, and part of Brakhage´s larger goal is to make each viewer more aware of her or his own subjectivity.

Letteroxd web:
This film by Stan Brakhage investigates the process of memory and thought by melting a series of images and a field of color. The positive-negative flickering graphs a sort of shutter-window all over the matter of the vision.
Jittery flocks of space are interweaving as pieces of language in a scant illumination, whereas the process of thought is sheared in fuzzy transience.
