Artist: Sam Spreckley
Surface II is part of an ongoing audiovisual exploration into the physicality of the celluloid film format. The work focuses on the ways in which sound can create a new sense in relation to the image, specifically to create a more heightened cinematic experience. The process of destruction of eight-millimeter celluloid film is captured in high definition to exploit the highest degree of detail in the experimentation. Every little detail and movement is complimented by an imagined sound design.
