16mm film projector, word processor, white leader, sound
15 x 5 x 30 feet
Description: Camera-less film installation with 16mm film projector sound installation with word processor, white leader film loop. Film loop feeds from projector and then into word processor where letters are printed on to the surface of the film and then projected back out. Duration is ongoing or until ink runs out.
Artist’s Concept: White leader film loop becomes an ephemeral artifact for the printer-wheel where words are no longer perceived, only imagined. The autonomous actions of these machines in motion reflect the same autonomous action of the viewer’s mind forming letters into words. A deconstruction of poetry that finds the mind’s eye.
Variations: Installation / Single-Channel Video / Single-Channel Film / Archival Inkjet Prints / Mixed Media film on wood
