Interesting. It is so hard for me to keep up with the various
esoteric showings, I guess we are all in that same boat ....
I wonder if I should put a seizure "warning" at the head of my
extended hand-painted films. ... probably not since there is
"content", in the sense that there is content in an AE painting vs.
a blank frame. Is there a particular frequency of flicker, I
wonder, which is seizure producing ? (Steve Polta did refer to this
phenomenon) If one showed any film at a slow enough speed would it
incur the danger of seizures in certain individuals? (I guess this
has happened) If a seizure producing film is digitized and shown on a
tv screen is it no longer seizure producing?
