About

The source for Shudder (top and bottom) is a piece of found footage on which a 35mm film image was mistakenly printed on 16mm film stock. Each frame of the original 35mm image covers two 16mm frames, with the top half of the original image on one frame and the bottom half on the next frame. When projected, this misprint becomes a kind of shuddering optical toy, with a dense, collagist soundtrack that rubs against the complicated visual weave of the images. Shudder (top and bottom) scratches at the fiction of the original footage, leaving behind, in its phosphene-laden after-image, a throbbing world of lonely danger.
