Steps in Rome

2013 | Super8 film digitized / Apple ProRes 422 (HQ)
b/w, sound, 5', photographs

  • My work relies on the tradition of experimental film and on the interaction of body, apparatus and environment. These two strands given, I try to put them in relationship.

    I use a discarded technology, Super8, and the structural-technological possibilities of digital film. An afterglow.

    The result is a form of Op Art (in the perception of the viewer) and a gesture of appropriation of architecture in the perspective of the maker, myself.
