Peter and nou together engage dialectically? They each have a proposal for the use /purpose /truth of the horizon tape /footage and /or the trip to the dentist (what’s the difference between all these btw?), and while the two videos present two differing truths for the horizon thing, the publication brings together a narrative in the midst of correction and an image only narrative. What’s going on??

There are the memories of that event, some accessible (mine, sengas), some not accessible (Gfs, dental nurse, program makers, camera crew.
