Solitary Acts #5

Rental Format(s): 16mm film / Digital File

Materials: Wittnerchrome, Exacto Knife, Fishing Line, Sewing Machine

The filmmaker films herself practice kissing with a mirror. She recalls teenage memories of overconsumption, confusing oral fixations (kissing and eating). She ends up eating the carrot she is masturbating with, and she feels a sense of cannibalism. The components of the background of the scene are broken down and filmed in extreme closeups. These wave and play with one another: when text over-consumes the image it transforms into the backdrop fabric where the filmmaker physically attaches the film together with fishing line.

Production format: 16mm
