Monument Film

The appearance theoretically is a continuous projection of WHITE light and continuous sound. But there is a slight alternation between the two machines, articulating the materiality of classic cinema.

II) installation in a bright rectangular space defined by three white walls.
The films are cut, each, in 128 strips of equal length, which hang on nails and are arranged in a rectangular, metric form.

Left wall: Arnulf Rainer
Right wall: Antiphon mirrored exactly opposite
Center wall: Arnulf Rainer and Antiphon placed one over the other.

The appearance is, theoretically, a BLACK rectangle but the antiphony is articulated by the two strips of film.
