Inspiration

Bill Morrison

Bill Morrison uses decomposed film to create beautiful and subtle works that investigate the connection between memory and archives. The organic forms, textures and aspects of light of the decaying film create an incredible aesthetic in analogue film. I wanted to recreate this idea, by speeding up the decomposing process through soaking film in chemicals or burying film in the ground.

Peter Hoffman incorporates the idea of decaying film as he creatively destroys footage using gasoline and fire. Definitely not a technique to try myself, but the technique has an incredible effect on the film. I decided that i would try burning the film, instead of using gasoline.
