Joanna Kiernan

Trilogy: Interval/Open & Shut/Narrative Moves (1977) 16mm, color & b/w, 16.75 min

Genre: Experimental

The film is divided into three sections which all use the same type of images and sounds--a Southern California house and landscape as recorded through a kind of peripheral vision of fragmented notation. The objects and sounds of the film do not have 'given' meanings; they are everyday and inconsequential enough to escape general symbolic appropriation. Each of the three sections constructs a particular syntax for these images and sounds, modulating the way they are experienced and building specific contextual meanings. --J. K.
