Fire Fly EYE

Rental Format(s): Digital File

Fire Fly EYE is my response to the devastating re-making of the world brought on by anthropogenic climate change and corporate "stewardship" of our natural resources. A ritual of reclamation in the face of overwhelming destruction, invoked through filming discarded consumer products, sifting spectacle out of catastrophe.

Documentation of 16mm dual-projection expanded cinema work, hand-processed, Ektachrome and b&w film.

"a hot-orange missive from a planet ablaze... Laitala employs the factory-made detritus of the industrial world - light bulbs, bubble wrap, and wisps of artificial smoke - to signify the hot wave of inexorable doom."
- Michael Sicinski, Cinema-Scope,
