Slides Directed by Annabel Nicolson

  • EdieEmm's rating of the film Slides

    Compelling, both conceptually and visually. Nicolson took disassembled slides of her paintings, sewed them together, and moved them by hand through the printer to form the moving image. Direct and unmediated; material and tactile; a reclamation of production and power - at human speed (makes me think of Virilio). Interesting possible feminist reading of her choice to sew the slides together...
