O.T. 10

I filmed O.T.8 - Hof, a black and white film, in which four „actors“ performed: positive and negative incidental light painting, - animated at the trick table and with real shots, - rhythmized single images, - by day and by night. These four image structures were woven to-gether with multiple exposures, whereby the painting in the film space was ex-panded and the photography was given a painterly dimension. I further developed this material digitally by distorting the color in parts of the film and superimposing these parts as moving bars over the original film. The traditional means of experimental film and gestural painting are used to remove the boundary between painting and film. (Thomas Steiner)
