Peach Landscape (1973) 16mm, color, 4.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Illusions of surface, abstract to pictorial. Initially the grain of the film emulsion, complete with scratches, variations in framing -- the meat of film -- are the most apparent elements of all. The object shown is revealed to be a bowl of canned peaches. But even with identification, the visual illusions return -- e. g., a concave surface becomes convex, the flat bottom of the bowl becomes an egg.
