About

The splendor and pleasures of Autumn are the focus of this richly textured and brilliantly colored paper emulsion film. The sound is a recording of the filmmaker ripping, rustling and tearing various kinds of paper. These sounds have been synthesized and musically arranged to echo the imaging of the synthesis paper. A reel of paper and fallen leaves unwinds amid calls of birds and the laughter of delighted children.
"Donna Cameron's work crosses the boundaries of film and painting. Her paper emulsion films are made via a process closer to assemblage than photography and draw attention to the sensuous properties of the celluloid medium." – Richard Herskowitz, Newsletter of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Ithaca, NY
"Donna Cameron is a diehard New Yorker whose art mirrors that city's pulse." – Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times
"Brooklyn native Donna Cameron's films are warm, humorous and well crafted. ... The remarkable thing about her [work] is her sensitivity to the rapid flow of textures. ... Cameron's technique has evolved into a highly sculptural motion picture painting." – Helen Knode, LA Weekly
