Takahiko Iimura

Shutter (1971) 16mm, black and white, 25 min

Genre: Experimental

Music by Keijiro Sato SHUTTER marks a further step in Iimura's developing interest in formal concerns. Using two projector speeds and various camera speeds, he photographed the light thrown onto a screen by a projector with no film running through it. Because of the disparities between the speeds of the camera and projector shutters, the resulting footage, which he printed first in positive, then in negative, creates a series of flicker effects. -- Scott MacDonald, Afterimage, April, 1978
