How do we define a film? If it consists of single photographs, where is the difference between both media? And, is there something in-between? “Cinematic shivers” consists of still photographs which are animated to short sequences. Are they moving photographs? Or do they become film scenes, taken out of their logical and chronological context? This artwork questions our understanding of cinema and our viewing habits and tries to reveal the essence of visual storytelling.
In contrast to film stills, the images in this work are intangible. Just as suddenly as they leap into view, they disappear again. Like the medium film they are time-based, yet there is no beginning or end as it would be in cinema.

Please note that this is just a 3 minutes long excerpt, the complete film can be viewed on my website sarahjanssen.com/cinematicshivers/
