Painting (I)

(2016–2017) unreleased

A 30-second long moving shot of tree branches in the night is abstracted by slowing the original footage down to 360 minutes, rendering the movement in the shot impertecible to the naked eye, in a sense undoing all that is conventionally considered cinema, revealing the tension between still image and moving image, and raising the question of the limits of optical perception, and what is cinema?
