The video aims to capture a raw, organic, tactile energy by scratching and painting directly onto found super 8mm celluloid film. I wanted the film to feel like it’s barely holding itself together and the whole thing could collapse at any moment. The film spontaneously flickers and burns, until it loses stability entirely and begins to break apart.
