∞ “untitled” – [ . . . . . ], 2018
“untitled” intends to reshape the experience of looking at plants, stones and desert landscapes. The filmmakers vary the number of frames per second at which the camera rolls. In some cases it runs at 24 frames per second, which is close to the experience of a human being looking at things. But often the camera captures just one frame per second or even fewer. It is unclear whose experience that could be, but it’s definitely not the visual experience of a human being. In the changing rhythms and ways of looking a new space and perception appears.
“untitled” was shot on 16 mm film, hand processed and scanned by the filmmakers themselves in an effort to avoid industrial processes in making the film. This also gave the film a rough, grainy, high contrast and almost dirty look and texture.
