Glissando for Bodies and Machines, 2017
In collaboration with Christina Vantzou
Hand-processing 16mm Thomas Depas
Glissando is a video project in collaboration with the artist and composer Christina Vantzou. The film was shot over two days in the woods at the Wéris megalith site in Belgium with five directors capturing the same scene with different optics ranging from early analog camera to 3D scanner. After editing and animating, the video was transferred to 16 mm film-stock and developed by hand. Similar to kinescoping techniques for archiving television sequences, the succession of transfers and the remanent emission of the screen mimics the muffled glow of early space exploration archive.
