2005, clear film leader, ruby lithographers tape
Strip, 2005, installation view
Strip is a handmade, stroboscopic
film, the rhythm of which is, based on the Golden
String. The film was made with clear
film leader. Optically transparent, but photographically opaque lithographic
stripping tape was applied to occlude the frames with 1's, while the
clear frames represent 0's. I found myself attracted to the absurdity
of using machine code to create an antiquarian, camera-less, "hand
processed" film. The film loop was installed in a manor reminiscent
of a mobius
strip or infinity symbol.
2005, production still
Thanks to M. Silva for inspiring this film by gifting me the leader.
