I BEGAN MAKING HANDMADE SLIDES………….BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE ALL THESE
LEFTOVER TINY SCRAPS OF FILM………FROM EDITING…………LEFT ON MY FLOOR…………BUT, INSTEAD OF
SWEEPING THEM UP WITH A BROOM…………., I KEPT THEM IN TINY PLASTIC BAGS…………..AND SAVED
EVERYTHING……………WHEN I COMPLETED A FILM, I WOULD ALSO MAKE SEVERAL SLIDES, AS A
VARIATION…….I KEPT THESE AS,…WHAT I CALL ”DO DADS”…………..JUST FOR ME ………………..A
SKETCH………………………………………I WOULD THINK ABOUT INSECTS………..HAIR,……………FILTH……………MY
FLESH ……………MY SKIN…………MY HISTORY AND DEATH ………………….THE FRAGMENTS OF LOST FILM MIGHT
BECOME THE ELEMENT OF TRUTH…………..I NEED TO PROCEED ……………..THE STILL STATIC IMAGE,
QUESTIONS FILM ………….SOMETHING I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT…………….AND TRY TO
UNDERSTAND……………….WHAT IS FILM………………?…………..AND WHAT IS FILM…………..CAN IT BE ICE…………..ALL
WE NEED IS LIGHT…………..AND SOME SORT OF MOVEMENT………………A CAST OF LIGHT IN TIME……………..
