Filmarmalade is a publishing and DVD label project specialising in contemporary artists' film and video works, supported by IMT Gallery, London.
Let Me Feel Your Finger First's Ontologically Anxious Organism, narrates the experience of an animated character, who nervous about the very concept of character itself, disquises himself as a boulder. The three episodes follow the boulders progress through a series of reconstituted cartoon scenes whilst he grapples with existence, meets his maker and finally slips outside of the space of the picture plane to seek the ultimate reference.
