2016, Goodbye Lovers
Phillip Stearns and Peter Hoffman work with analogue film in an interesting way by destroying negatives with household chemicals. Implementing this into my own work, I first soaked my film in washing detergent and lemon for 24 hours, then added bleach and boiling hot water before leaving out in the sun to dry. This created an eroding effect which adds to the narrative of the film created. I edited my film, working with repetition, layering, cut ins, fade outs and speed exploring the idea of a man leaving his wife for sea. The use of rhythm is evident through the use of repetition and narrative, interwoven and experimented to challenge the way, we as viewers, experience rhythm in an abstract film.
