Single shot video documentation of the screen - the last few minutes. Recorded at Never or Now Festival, Bergen, Jan 2011
Cipher Screen is a live art piece using 2 prepared 16mm film projectors with black film loops and a live sound feed. This work harnesses the mechanisms of film and cinema; the projector, the film material, the darkened room and synchronized sound - creating a live score and a visual and sonic interaction.
The constant, reductive physical process applied to the surface of the film loops results in a slow transformation on the screen surface; out of aural and visual darkness builds a cacophonous crescendo of sound and image.
