Like Flowing, Like Spinning, 2009, 6 min


Experimental, Historic Film, Short Film, Special Presentations

I drag a 16mm negative film in a darkroom, improvisationally adhere it with the developed 16mm positive film and expose them by light of Maglite. I intentionally let a film reproduce the phenomenon, namely “fog”, which is usually considered as a mistake, because there is too much light in the film. The film flows from a camera, developing solution, a film projector to retina and spins the images in our mind. – A.M.
