All this material was found. From what we can gather, it makes up some sort of psychological test. A couple, seemingly non-professionals, created the test. We don’t have their names, only their initials: B and K.
In a box we found two film cans and a folder. Inside film can A there was a roll of 16mm picture negative. Inside film can B there was a roll of 16mm sound negative.
Studies for a new insect cinema
35mm slides, external shutters, rotating screen | 40 min | 2019
We present our existing attempts at creating a new insect cinema based on the theory of spirit anarchy put forth by Dagmara Král, creator of the first insect cinema.
