(Joseph Bernard, 1977, 18 min)
Significantly pivotal, this early experiment shot with a flawed camera, made editing manipulation indispensable, even desirable. The first & last images are of a portion/ detail of “Chamber” -- a 1970, 40”x30” decal-on-glass and mirror painting of mine that, like the film, reflects its surroundings. The film’s title takes into account other meanings and implications of the word ‘chamber’, i.e., of the heart, core, intimate music, prison, camera, room, gun part (both empty & loaded).
