The influence of ocular light perception on metabolism in man and in animala film by Thomas Draschan & Stella Friedrichs
EXPERIMENTAL FILM | 2005 | Austria, Germany | 6 min | Color | 16mm
A found footage film, which will exist both as a single screen as well as a double screen version. It uses an Italian sixties softporn soundtrack which is repeated two times. Each time a sequence of images is synched to the soundtrack. It can thus be viewed as a double projection (in a video installation) or a single screen cinema version. The film images are illustrating acts of ocular light perception as well as imagery with strong visual impact. It is a kind of visual test directed towards the viewer.
Director: Thomas Draschan & Stella Friedrichs
