Fiasco and Sonder

Reporting on 93ft of film, expired 100T (spooled off from a roll of 400ft in the darkroom (kitchen, black-out fabric, duct tape, prayers) at my flat (with occasional light bursts from forgotten light emitting sensory devices), and with 3-d printed appliances from Illinois to aid the ancient film spooler Oliver Mezger gave me, though most of this became hand spun) with very evident noise, I thought this would look more abused – so improvised from one action to the other, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, page 21, Butt Magazine, 2008, spring edition, with gold leaf; “Invisibility does not deprive something of a body” is Rosalind’s moon in stored reflected light from the moon, or, feral sunlight; an interrupted cascade is openings and mirroring on selected tulips (de tulpen van Roos); a flash of some sort; so another delicate episode, shot on Christmas Day, 2020. ‘Fiasco and Sonder’, 2020-2021, 16mm film, 2 mins, 37 secs, silent.
