Arapadaptor (I Feel So) (1999) 16mm, color, 4.25 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Found Footage, Hand-processed

Arapadaptor (I Feel So) is an abstract film of mostly found sound and cameraless images. Most of the source material was unwittingly supplied by a Chinese herbalist. To produce ARAPADAPTOR I applied my flashlight and laser, ala Man Ray, to the caterpillars, cicadas and seeds of the herbal packages, and this was only the beginning. Much of the original footage was further manipulated - painted, tinted and/or bleached. Finally, the images were rephotographed, slowed, through the use of an optical printer.
