Recent video work Gaps in the Persistent Hiss, with sound by Malvern Brume, will premiere as part of Experiments in Cinema: A Celebration of International Cinematic Experimentation.
The film festival, based in New Mexico, is online from May 1-22 at www.experimentsincinema.org. Gaps… is in Programme 12.
Gaps in the Persistent Hiss is a journey through a landscape, both sonically and visually. Through the combination of experimental music and a hand-held telescopic lens, this video presents a radically discontinuous, almost hallucinogenic experience, gradually revealing a primordial dimension to the world. It squeezes the visible through the material funnel of the lens, unfolding it on the other side to reveal a new perspective.
Experiments in Cinema, recently featured in the Millennium Film Journal and Senses of Cinema magazine, was voted one of the top 10 experimental film festivals in the world.
