Painted Screen

A live projection event, in which a film consisting of rhythmic frames of solid colour is projected onto a hand-made screen painted with blocks of plain colour.

The combined effect is that the shapes in the screen appear to move, while colours jump and shift under the influence of the projected colours and their retinal afterimages.

There are several screen designs for this film, and various possibilities for projection. The film has first to be reprinted from standard 8mm to 16mm.
