Picture and Sound Rushes

(Morgan Fisher, 1973, 11 min)

Picture and Sound Rushes takes the form of a lecture in which Fisher’s deadpan discourse describes the various permutations of sound/silence and picture/no picture. These states are demonstrated in the editing, which cuts between them at regular intervals (determined by dividing a roll of film equally by the total number of combinations), with no regard for the audience struggling to follow the dialogue. -Mark Webber
