At The Academy

At The Academy

Synopsis

"Makes use of found footage hand printed on a simple home-made contact printer, and processed in the kitchen sink. At the Academy uses displacements of a positive and negative sandwich of the same loop. Since the printer light spills over the optical sound track area, the picture and sound undergo identical transformations. At the Academy was sold twice to the National Library of Australia. The second sale became necessary after the first print was mistaken for a roll of Academy Leader." – Guy Sherwin
