A Cold Compress (2010)

Running time: 12:13
Native format: Quicktime MOV

A studio experiment in which I hold a 16mm film projector offscreen, slowly panning its light across a bouquet of yellow daisies left in my studio by a stranger. The projector’s 24fps flicker clashes with the 30fps frame rate of my video camera; as the shot repeats again and again, doubling in speed with each successive play, the light phases in an out of coherence.
