Double Halves: double projection film works by 5 artists

By on


Average: 4 (1 vote)

Microscope presents an evening of new and recent double projection works for 16mm film and 35mm film slides by Josh Guilford, Sarah Halpern, Bruce McClure, Lívia Sá, and Audra Wolowiec

The varied works in “Double Halves” utilize two projections to form a whole – although not literally – with each side complementing the other or serving as a part of a single narrative, visual composition, or projection apparatus. Some of the works are projected with a prerecorded soundtrack, others include more performative elements and/or a live sound accompaniment. 

In contemplating the works by the five artists, we have tumbled deep into the rabbit hole where we are now asking ourselves whether double projection is the more logical presentation of a medium in which it could be argued that duality is ever present. The celluloid film itself has a head and a tail; the projection (usually) requires two reels, feed and take up; in theaters films are loaded on and projected from two projectors to avoid downtime for reel changes; etc. Is double projection two projections or one divided in half?

Artists will be attendance and available for Q&A following the program.
