MOLTEN SURFACE
Digital, HD | Stereo
16:9 I colour | 3’44” | 2018
By taking advantage of HDR screen motion-flow technology, we magnified the uncanny effects created by discrepancies in digital media time. In the uninterrupted take, a layer of water is recorded at 240 frames per second while it runs on top of public domain stock footage of volcanic activity, which had been previously manipulated to play at 240 frames per second so to appear as playing at normal speed in the slow motion video. In the resulting moving image work, organic methods of distortions create unique artefacts and refractions that interfere with ideas of digital media time.
