I wanted to make something that would serve as a visual accompaniment to Julia Holter’s song “Marienbad”, but would not be strictly tied to it. I utilized multiple film projections interacting and interfering with one another in a single composition. The material seen in this video was made with Kodak Tri-X regular 8 mm motion picture film and Kodak Plus-X 35 mm still film, all of it processed by hand. The video is a single take documenting a live performance using two 8 mm projectors and a single 35 mm projector all aimed at the same space on a screen; there is no digital manipulation of the images, and no edits have been made to the recording.
