      The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes is a 1971 American experimental film by Stan Brakhage. It was filmed on 16mm without synchronized sound in a Pittsburgh morgue. The title is based on a literal translation of the term autopsy. The film is part of Brakhage's "Pittsburgh trilogy"[1], a trio of "documentary" films Brakhage made about the city's various institutions in 1971; the other two are Eyes, about the city police, and Deus Ex, filmed in a hospital. Writing about the film, American critic Jonathan Rosenbaum referred to The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes as "one of the most direct confrontations with death ever recorded on film."[2] Brakhage shot The Act of Seeing with One's Own Eyes during a visit to a morgue, and the bulk of the film consists of images of autopsies. In a Senses of Cinema profile of the filmmaker, filmmaker and curator Brian Frye wrote: "The key image of The Act of Seeing With One's Own Eyes is quite likely the bluntest statement on the human condition ever filmed. In the course of an autopsy, the skin around the scalp is slit with a scalpel, and in preparation for exposing and examining the brain, the face of each cadaver is literally peeled off, like a mask, revealing the raw meat beneath. That image, once seen, will never leave you."[1]

                This is how he would paint on film in the last several years of his life, mostly out in public, at various cafes and restaurants in downtown Boulder (before they inevitably kicked him out for one reason or another), meeting and greeting while continuing to work, having an Irish coffee, etc. Here he is working with the 35mm trailers for the feature film "Quills" that would eventually become VERY and NIGHT MULCH, two of his most unique hand-painted films (they have their own "reviews" embedded under the paint - very witty indeed). That is old friend and wonderful filmmaker, Abraham Ravett, visiting us from Hampshire College.

                  I've been doing this for years with a long time away in between. I have my heroes in experimental video, video art, moving image, call it what you will. Please be forgiving, this is very rough, it needs many more frames, it needs ambient sound, it need many things! But I'm putting it out there as a work in progress. Thank you John Dalton and Studio Artist! I know many of you think Brian Eno 'invented' the idea of moving paintings with '77 million Paintings' and maybe in some way he did, just remember all of the many pioneers whose work came before him!

                    (HEADPHONES RECOMMENDED) ‘Blue’ is a completely experimental film. The idea behind the film is loosing process of traditional storytelling or breaking down a linear narrative. It’s a completely sensorial experience and everyone can derive their own meaning, it is perfectly fine if they only experience the film without looking for any meaning. It is an experience, built through spontaneity, lot of coffee and love for poetry. [film has been shot on 16mm and projected through 16mm projector, but due to lack of facilities, the sound has been put digitally]
