Working the surface of the celluloid, these films have been physically cut, scratched, taped, dyed, bleached, and optically printed to create a moving image on screen. All films presented are film prints on 16mm. Included in this program is Steve Cossman's work on film TUSSLEMUSCLE, assembled from over 7,000 individual view-master reel cells. Hand-spliced together into a linear film strip over the course of three years, the film transforms Kodachrome flora from musical and numerical pattern into visual rhythm.
MONO NO AWARE is an international exhibition of contemporary artists and filmmakers open to any person or group of persons making work that incorporates Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm or altered light projections as part of a live performance or installation.
