Films in Competition

This silent hand-processed and optically printed film shifts like an electric current between positive and negative spaces to examine the electric pylons by the Los Angeles River. The geometric and graphic nature of these structures is further explored through double exposures, step printing, and pixelation.

16mm, Silent

Directed by Norbert Shieh (Los Angeles, CA)
