Terrace 492004

  • 3.7
Images of impending disaster (slamming doors, a truck careening down a hill and a frayed, almost snapping elevator rope) collide with the repeated image of a woman's body, cycling toward ephemerality as the woman disappears into the texture of the film itself. In her recent films, Geiser has been exploring the possibilities found in merging video texture with film, creating a lush, disorienting, ambiguous film space and an atmosphere of temporal suspension. In TERRACE 49, the space is shattered further, broken into shards: as fractured as memory and as fragile as glass.

This one really speaks to me. The images are uncannily similar to my own work, and the presence of the technological filters are incredibly mesmerizing. There are repeated framing of those same imagery, yet each time they are shown, the images become more connected with the film space itself. Merging into the film through textures. The play of that positive negative space and texture guided movements are something find deeply fascinating!

AAAAhhh what a comforting reminder that low rez can still be as mesmerizing and rich as this. After hours and hours of scanning high rez stuff to animate with, this video is helping me to remember my roots and not panic about having to get the point across with a million special effects. The placement of the images is wisely made, and the colors and texture remind me of watching TV as a little kid when I would press my face onto the screen and trip out hahhah. Probably that was the first sort of psychedelic experience for a lot of people growing up with TV. Glad someone is playing with that imagery. Thank you Geiser!!
