Michael Wiese - Messages, Messages (1972) 16mm, black and white, sound,
23.5 min. A journey of the psyche into the world of the unconscious.
This surrealistic film is influenced by Dali, Bunuel and the German
expressionists. The film was premiered at the St. Regis Hotel in New
York by Salvador Dali and invited to Director's Fortnight at Cannes.
James Benning - 9/1/75 (1975) 16mm, color, sound, 22 min. Twenty-two
minute tracking shot through campgrounds in Southern Wisconsin
Pip Chodorov - Charlemagne 2: Piltzer (2002) 16mm, color, sound, 22 min
A piano concert by Charlemagne Palestine, filmed on super-8 and
optically printed. Each film frame corresponds to a note in the
concert; as the music speeds up, photography becomes cinema. The
discordant harmonics are translated visually into complementary colors.
By representing music visually, the fast flickering creates an orgasm
in the optic nerve.
Donna Cameron - Live Reel I - War Paths Thru Turquoise & Silver
(2005) 16mm, color, silent, 15 min. All films employ a cinematic paper
emulsion technique developed by Cameron since 1974 and are handmade,
original works. Film begins with primitive carving into handmade paper
emulsion of ancient cuneiform glyphs, evolves into painting and drawing
of glyphs, them floating type, using digital print-out of helvetica
type and concludes with multi-material words: World Trade Alphabet." --

Pip Chodorov - Faux Mouvements (Wrong Moves) (2007) 16mm, color, sound,
12 min. Having studied cognitive science and film semiotics, Pip
Chodorov (b. 1965) recent films and drawings explore the terrain
between the two fields. While aiming to confuse the parts of the brain
responsible for the perception of motion (areas VI7 and VI8 of the
optical cortex), Chodorov maximizes the potential hypnotic power of
repetition and irregularity.
