Film Type: 8mm on digital video
Investigating ideas around beauty and decay, "Endings No. 1 (Sail)" was made by splicing together the perforated ends of found 8mm footage. This film format was manufactured with punctured tails, usually discarded in the splicing process. Bringing the past into the present, these textured anachronistic moments explore film’s materiality, and were collaged together in an attempt to question "the end" in film, and to honour closing seconds of dismissed time.
