Film on Film


FILM on FILM / There are no moving images in cinema. The mind is the great animator of the seemingly invisible stream of still frames that outwit and mystify human perception. With the advent of cinema at the end of the 19th century, the photographic image was redefined by its rate of display, a static counterpart to the twenty-four-frame-per-second movie. Still photography and cinema soon drifted apart and offered very different expressions of our cultural and social realities. FILM on FILM is a conscious effort to rejoin them at the point of their transition from analogue to digital. It is both a celebration of the physicality of film as we have known it, and a reminder of the seductive temporal potential of the “frame” in concert with itself.
