Somthing i often struggle with is the concept of meaning. Within the context of film this becomes even more complex as film is mostly acknowledged as a narrative based medium of storys. I have taken this project as an opportunity to ignore any desire to transmit or stimulate a meaning intentionally, i think of meaning as being a bit spurious when its intentional as it suggest's their is some form of 'correct' interpretation. Loosly realted is this article about Barthes "third meaning". Its an appealing idea but i feel akward. I can agree that removing an image from a context as strong a sequence in a film will offer a different responce but not meaning. Are meanings projected onto images if so, then do they come from it by triggring our intellect, our experience ect... - is that what meaning is.
