FILM DIGITALIA, NO. 15
Director: Matt Whitman
United States, 2013, 4 min
Shooting Format:Super 8
Crew:Executive Producers: Matt Whitman
This work is a study of the durative moment of montage between three bodies: the digital, the filmic and the human. It is a moment of confrontation between these three bodily apparatuses. It is about how they are constantly at odds with each other and yet, also in awe of each other. - looking and looking and trying to feel the others, become the others and destroy the others. How is it that they can be merged and become something beyond their separateness? How can they, together, become a fourth body?
