About

An ongoing series of investigations that attempt to penetrate film's enigmatic materiality in tandem with the vagaries of my own emotional and psychological states. Each installment consists of a single 100' roll of 16mm black and white film stock exposed with simple vertical lines that follow the natural trajectory of the film strip. Working under red light, the emulsion is then treated by hand with various chemical applications, giving the strip it its color, texture, and sense of movement. Although an idea of progress from roll to roll is not necessarily an objective, I do have sense that working and struggling with the material in this way will symbiotically further my understanding of what film is made of, and what I am made of. -JL
