Day Thirteen: Open Paths
When the spaces of a film are photographed and edited together in a sequence, of course, there’s a suggestion they are or should be interpreted as a totality, or sub-totality, revealing an evident order – a macro-structure maybe? The film can present an illusion of one self-contained location but often will be photographed across several. The actual proximity is always veiled, withdrawn by necessity. The entry and exit points in the frame suggest movement through an interior space. They are bi-directional, leaving open paths for the viewer or characters to exit or return.
I’m starting to get a sense of what the work I’m making on this residency is or might be.
