  • Guy Sherwin - Cycles #3 (1972-2003)

    Cycles #3A two-projector film event using images and sounds made directly by hand. The film is a development of Cycles 1 1972/77 in which paper dots are stuck onto the surface of the film and onto its optical sound track.
    On projection these separate instants are converted simultaneously into picture and sound. The gaps between the dots gradually decrease until a fusion of the material occurs: the separate image-moments become a pulsating ball of light, while the rhythmic sound-moments join into a continuous rising drone.
    Cycles 3 uses one b/w print set inside another tinted print. This combination gives rise to induced colours and after-images as well as complex cross-rhythms in the soundtrack.

    9 mins b/w & colour 16mm 2 projectors 2 optical soundtracks
    (made at the LFMC. The pos and neg were printed at the Coop. Cycles uses a Debrie contact printer which is now in nowhere)

    Video documentation filmed at La Sala Rosa, Montreal Canada. Organized by Double Negative.

  • Guy Sherwin - Man With Mirror (1976-2006)

    Man With Mirror (1976/2006)Film performance using a hand-held mirrored screen

    This documentation was filmed at a retrospective screening in Montreal.

    The
    screen is white one side and mirrored the other, and is used by the
    performer to either 'catch' the projected image, or reflect it around
    the cinema space. The image on film is of the same activity happening
    in a sunlit landscape. Visual echoes are set up between the live event
    and the recorded one. This performance can include directional sound
    aimed at the screen, the movements of which bounce the sound around the
    space.

  • Raymond Salvatore Harmon - The Koan of Sisyphus (2001)

    The Koan of SisyphusScreening as part of the Heaven Gallery Winter Screening - February 17th, Chicago.

    Shown as part of the SIDEWALK CINEMA showcase, Chicago IL - Friday, May 11 - 2001

    "A collage of loops made from found footage of steam shovels,
    trains chugging up mountainsides, and various scenes of hard physical
    labor in industrial settings, all colored a garish red. A layer of
    marks, like red snow, drifts across the screen. A harshly discordant
    electronic score reinforces a sense of a hellish, senselessly
    repetitive nightmare of meaningless toil. "
