Heavy Eyes (Schwere Augen), 2011, 10 min
Siegfried A. Fruhauf, Austria
In this hand-processed inscription of cinema negation, unnamed players in found-footage fragments shimmer hypnotically in faint exchanges as a sound engine bears down heavily from above. Darkened figures outline themselves over and over as doppelgängers in negative and positive, unfolding endlessly as though calyxes hidden within mercurial emulsion.
