About

A conceptual lap dissolve from "water currents" to "film strip current"/Dedicated to my son, Christopher. "Yes. S:S:S:S:S:S is beautiful. The successive scratchings of the stream-image film is very powerful vandalism. The film is a very complete organism with all the possible levels really recognized." – Michael Snow "In his earlier flicker films, Sharits expores the mechanisms of perception and projection, and now he takes his investigations to their logical extreme - to the nature of the film-strip itself. ... The fascination and energy of the film derive from its multi-dimensional dialectics, in which all available systems of experience are contrasted with their logical opposites/complements: sound against vision, film as representation against film as object, circular against linear structure, progression against regression, past against whole, meaning against abstraction." – David James, Art & Cinema Collection: Anthology Film Archives; Centre National D'Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou, Paris.
