About

My film was inspired by artist Tony Conrad's 1965 film "The Flicker."

You will be sitting in the dark experiencing the unique pattern created by numbers.

The vast majority of the frames in this film are black.

Frame numbers that are prime numbers are white (2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, … 8,123).

Frame numbers that are perfect numbers are red (6, 28, 496, and 8128).

For the best experience view in a dark room at loud volume.

Warning: The stroboscopic nature of “prime perfect” provides an intense viewing experience.
