New on 16mm: Under the Shadow of Marcos Mountain (Robert Schaller, 2010)

The structures of our thought filter what we see, and in fact there is no seeing apart from those structures. This film is part of an ongoing project to show where I am in a (here, natural) landscape in a way that reflects those structures of thought. It is “hypnogogic,” not so much perceptually (although to some extent that too) as conceptually. Our eyes see constantly, but what do we actually notice? That vision is excessive, wasteful, even; in paring down, it becomes both more spare and more concentrated.

Shot entirely on a homemade pinhole camera.
