Beach Walk

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Several formal ideas are at work in this film - originally a 15-foot shot of a nude figure crossing a beach. The first idea was to flatten out the film plane by stripping it of vanishing point perspective and concentrate on the two-dimensional graphic space. Next, an exploration of re-presentation - how a figure enters/exits the frame, multiple exposures, variation of the close-up/long shot, anchors (what viewers hook onto in graphic space). And lastly, allusion, most specifically homage to Muybridge and motion study - how a human walks through space. Original music composed by Heikki Koskinen is used in opposition to the figure's movement.
