Harvest Moon Film Sculpture
Harvest Moon, Film sculpture (2011) Above is a video simulation of overlapping films by multi-media artist, Amanda Long. The film experiment utilizes super 8 mm projectors, looping mechanisms, and a double peephole.
In a contemporary version of Thomas Edison’s Kinetoscope, the figure of trapeze artist Harvest “Moon” King is separated into three films with red, blue and green (RGB) filters and projected through Super 8mm film projectors.
When the RGB films overlap they will form the film in full color through additive light mixing. It will be almost impossible for the three films to be played at the same speed causing the image as it overlaps to become abstracted as it runs slightly out of sync.
