Film without a camera – Painting and scratching on 16mm film

Simple forms are painted and scratched onto transparent or black 16mm film material and the resulting lines and patterns are animated with a 16mm film projector. Dots expand and contract, lines begin to dance with one another, light-flooded color pictures are set in motion.

The individual film strips are glued together to make a single collaborative work. This is projected on the screen in the darkened room, where it comes alive as a silent film. All without a camera.
