Berlin Horse (1970) 16mm, color, 7 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists, Found Footage

BERLIN HORSE is a synthesis of a number of works which explore the transformation of the image by re-filming from the screen and by complex printing techniques. There are two original sequences: a piece of early newsreel and a section of 8mm film shot in Berlin -- a village in North Germany. The 8mm material is refilmed in various ways from the screen onto 16mm and that in turn used for permutative superimposition and color treatment in the printer. The music is composed for the film by Brian Eno and like elements of the image, explores off-setting loops with each other so that their phases shift. --M. L. G.
