Ephemeral Solidity (1993) 16mm, color, 5 min

Genre: Experimental

This is one of the most elaborately edited of all the hand-painted films of late -- a Haydnesque complexity of thematic variations on a totally visual (i. e., un-musical) theme. This film is composed of 35mm hand-painted images reduced to 16mm film, single-frames, shots of two, three, four frames and, occasionally, slightly longer shots, all interspersed with a variety of calculated lengths of black leader which cause a flickering of abstract patterns in rhythmed darkness.
