About

ICE is a film of a film (Franklin Miller's Whose Circumference Is Nowhere) rephotographed through 50 pounds of ice. The soundtrack is a loop – sound equipment recording underwater. "The films of J. J. Murphy elicit a response based upon purely aesthetic experience; however, they grow from the artist's concern with particular concepts. ICE was created by rephotographing a film from the opposite side of a slab of ice. The new work explodes into rays of alternating color and intensity." – Karen Cooper "ICE (1972): made in collaboration with another film-maker in Iowa. Murphy uses his friend's film projecting behind a 50 lb. block of ice. The ice, a frozen but ever-changing lens between the projector and Murphy's camera: a chilled aurora dialogue." – Mike Reynolds, Berkeley Barb
