World In Focus (1976) 16mm, color, 16.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Project at 24 fps In WORLD IN FOCUS, the screen becomes the two-dimensional support of an amazingly versatile three-dimensional object (the Atlas) which contains in turn two-dimensional pictures of other three-dimensional objects. The physicality of the book offers an area no less real than its language (i. e. text, pictures, etc.) which is itself presenting a dislocated image "of the world." To look at the objectness of the book is in fact to look at the real thing, something which is contained in what it portends to describe. The film inventories and builds both on a number of camera/book affinities and the ramifications of the resulting deconstruction of the book's "language." Made with a grant from the Canada Council.
