Four Girls (1967) 16mm, black and white, 2.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists, Music

4 girls in front of a camera trying to be as still as possible while shot in a single fram sequence. Alternating with the girls are black spaces and single frame shots of store mannequins, skeletons, dolls, etc. The sound track is applied with household bleach and a fine pen, rows of dots producing the actual sounds heard, a kind of rushing roaring, the way breathing sounds through a stethoscope. The sound is synchronized directly with any live shot, the black spaces being left silent, building to a kind of expectancy as shots continually shorten. --K. D.
