Experiments (1986) 16mm, color, 40 min

Genre: Experimental

The reel includes a number of "experimental" works, including SISTERS (my first single-system mag strip film), LAURA?ALAN (condensation and displacement of memory), AQUARIUM, AQUARIUM II, etc. These works explore various techniques, such as single-framing in order to produce the illusion of three-dimensionality; sexuality and memory lost in the midst of single-framed images; overlays concerned with preconscious memory; fast and "almost-missed" narrative, and so forth. A lot of this work has gone into my longer films. This is an opprotunity to see material in progress that is nonetheless of interest in itself. These are some of the few films surviving from 1986-1987; the others were lost.
