Storyline

A 16-mm film loop, mainly consisting of found footage (essentially excerpts from documentaries and older German expressionist films), is run through a series of chemical baths during the projection itself; developer, bleach, fixer, corrosive acids, and organic and chemical dyes all seep into the emulsion, attack it, and gradually dissolve it. Several microphones capture the ticking and rattling of the film's feed as well as the hiss and gurgle of the chemicals as they react with one another and eat into the "flesh" of the film. Written by Yael Kaduri - The Oxford Handbook of Sound and Image in Western Art
