Shot on Blood: KozmIkonic Electronica

"Shot on Blood: Kozmikonic Electronica",
Oliver Hockenhull, 2010


1/2 of the film was shot using a hand cranked 35mm camera, a 1912 Bell and Howell 2709 — B. The other half of the film was shot in HD. The film was hand processed and using the colour matrix and gamma of a hand made emulsion (using my own tinted blood cells for grain — based on a 1930’s patent) the film was transferred to high definition video.

The work is about representation today

— analog / binary — & electricity & hydro power & British Columbia & the beginnings of cinema via Eadweard Muybridge & the energy certificates of the Technocracy party & the absolute value of noise & the year 1957 & regional modernism & the Big Bang & Vermeer's “Milk Maid” & Poincaré recurrence theorem & the great Canadian cowboy singer Wilf Carter & Western Culture & the concept of Grace in Catholic painting & the Tathāgatas of Buddhism & Boris Karloff as Frankenstein reaching for the light. 57 minutes.
