EXPANDED CINEMA PERFORMANCE BY LUIS MACIAS
17.11.2023 | 19:00 | Art Bioskop Kolarac
A exploration of the emulsion.
Without image. Without sound.Without description.
“…the idea is to reduce to the minimum the elements that form the cinematograph device. To work with less elements but having a deep control over it. The limitation of using only 2 meters of processed film stock that becomes totally black is highly stimulating. I’m forced myself to control each frame with all –only- the elements of the projection ,light, shutter and focus…" L.M.
