Description

영화 로케이션 탐험가가 오스트레일리아 남부에서 오팔 광산 마을을 탐험하게 된다. 공상과학 분위기의 에세이 필름인 이 작품은 거의 버려진 이 지역에서 원주민 문화의 흔적과 영화 역사의 유물을 발견한다.

이 작품은 실재와 매개된 것의 경계, 그리고 영역의 관념을 탐구한다. 영화 로케이션 탐험가의 여정을 추적하면서 거의 버려진 마을의 이미지를 통해 정착과 소속의 관념을 살펴본다. 35mm 사진과 현미경 및 CG 이미지가 결합된 이 작품은 실재와 상상의 경계를 상대화하면서 보석 무역뿐만 아니라 정체성이나 신화와 같은 광범위한 문제와 관련된 ‘가치’라는 생각을 탐색한다.

An unseen location scout explores an opal mining town in South Australia in this sci-fi-laced essay film, which finds in this semi-deserted region both the traces of indigenous culture and remnants of cinema history.

Silica explores territorial constructs and the boundaries of the real and the mediated in an opal mining town in the South Australian desert. Charting the journey of a film location scout, notions of settlement and belonging are investigated through images of a town in the midst of abandonment. Combining 35mm photography with microscopic and CG imagery, Silica blurs the actual and imaginary to probe ideas of value which support not only the gem trade but wider questions of identity and mythology.

PALIMPSEST (10'19")

The film Palimpsest reconstructs the interior of one house over a period of three centuries. These three hundred years are compressed into ten minutes and unraveled through a combination of 'time -lapse', real time, and stop frame photography. The camera is fixed as the 'space' inside the frame itself transforms, destructs and evolves with the passage of time. Historical periods are played toward archetypes and signifiers of how we understand these periods through constructed references to 17th, 18th and 19th century painting and early 20th century cinema. Life is represented through the everyday rituals of labor and domestic duties. As time progresses, the environment reconfigures itself – leaving faint legible remains. Decay extends itself to rebirth and the living are engulfed by the omnipotent specter of those who came before. As the layers unfold there is a build up of historical residue which engulfs the entire field of time and space leaving a complex web of human strata.
