Arapadaptor (I Feel So)


ARAPADAPTOR (I Feel So) is an abstract film of mostly found sound and cameraless images. Most of the source material was unwittingly supplied by a Chinese herbalist. To produce ARAPADAPTOR I applied my flashlight and laser, a la Man Ray, to the caterpillars, cicadas and seeds of the herbal packages, and this was only the eginning.Much of the original footage was further manipulated - painted, tinted and/or bleached. Finally, the images were rephotographed, slowed, through the use of an optical printer.
