phosphene, 2018



phosphene
2 X 16mm performance, variable length, 2018
A suite in four movements performed with two 16mm projectors. Created with a series of film loops rendered individually with sprayed paint, scraped and abraded softened black emulsion, pin and hole punctures, india ink craquelure and meticulous frame by frame application. By manipulating the image, introducing carefully orchestrated lens interference with colour gels, frame-edge masking, vignetting and glass objects, Phosphene Induces a variation on closed-eye vision and non-light hallucination: a subtly immersive and sublime sculpting of light.
