Abstract: 200-400 words
Frames is a 16mm film installation that uses fourteen projectors and loops of found footage strung across the space. People moving through the spaces cause the film projectors and other mechanisms to turn on. The wear and tear on the film, changes in the films’ subject matter and correlations, and the randomness of human movement, ensure a constantly evolving experience. Whenever a film loop broke, a randomly selected section of film would be spliced in. At the end of the show, the loops were connected to create a ten minute long, randomly edited film.
