Rhythmos I

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Picture and sound by Robert Schaller.

An investigation of how experience is filtered by the mental state and history we bring to it, with the film itself being a record of how the experience of making it was noticed and translated into memory. I composed a detailed shooting score according to musical proportions, and took this plan into the world where I "performed" it, filling it with whatever I saw: what it became was determined as much by what I brought to it - the score - as by what I encountered physically in shooting it. In keeping with the dichotomy between plan and chance, all editing was pre-planned and executed in-camera, and all specific image content spontaneous. As such, it became a model for the interplay between immediate perception and preexisting mental states characteristic of life.
