Employing real-time composition of a kinetic system based on common window blinds, controlled by a digital interface, blind film attempts to reconfigure familiar subjects that constantly change and repeat in everyday life but can come to us like unrefined feelings and traces.
This project began with a look at a window blind. An unknowable glimpse of light formed a mediating figure between the moment of occurrence and the moment of observation, then collapsed into the recognition of unfixed experience as an open constellation, porous to contingencies. blind film embraces the capacities of intimacy based on absence, distance, and ruptures of time and space that reconstruct actual and virtual spaces as well as the viewer. It affords a complex sensory experience by stepping aside from the event to look at it from a temporal distance, and over time.
