There are three mental states which I find interesting. Amnesia is now knowing who you are and wanting desperately to know. I call this the White Night. Euphoria is not knowing who you are and not caring. This is the Dream of Meditation. Ecstasy is knowing exactly who you are and still not caring. I call this the Memory of the Future.

In the autobiographical ELASTICITY (1976, 25 mins, Color), Strand brings together diverse images and voices to evoke her search for self, thus "decentering the first-person voice, distributing it among a number of speakers."
