Work -------------




Thumbnail: tàc! is an experimental video of intimate glimpses and elusive access to a relationship between the artist and an important figure in their life. The video footage was shot in reciprocity by Angelicadata and their video companion; it began as a loose tribute to their relationship, and was produced with an emphasis on experimentation with unfamiliar processes and mediums. Thumbnail: tàc! is composed of black & white Super 8 reversal film footage, made positive by digitally recorded projections of the hand-developed film, as well as digital footage between takes. The digital interventions and recordings of the analogue footage [initially only meant to serve the purpose of projecting positive super 8 moving-images and B-roll] proved themselves integral to the work, as they echo undertones felt throughout the video of the necessary destruction of dichotomies to allow for the complexities of interrelatedness and ambiguity.
