PINHOLE SERIES 1: BULB
Country: USA
For­mat: 16mm film ins­ta­lla­tion
Dura­tion: 1,000 hours (appro­xi­ma­tely)
Color
Silent
2006

Synop­sis:

   When this hand­ma­de film is scree­ned, the lens of the pro­jec­tor is off. It is a 16mm mag­ne­tic sound film-loop, “pinho­led” fra­me by fra­me whe­re every hole is made in a dif­fe­rent pla­ce within each fra­me in order to pro­du­ce an ani­ma­ted ima­ge of the lamp in the pro­jec­tor on a nearby screen. This is not a com­mon film that bears an ima­ge of the past on its emul­sion, but the pro­jec­ted ima­ge of a pre­sent object-event dis­tor­ted by film in real-time.

PINHOLE SERIES 2: DIAPHRAGM (in pro­gress)
Country: Mexi­co-Colom­bia
For­mat: 16mm film ins­ta­lla­tion
Dura­tion: 1,000 hours (appro­xi­ma­tely)
Color
Silent
2015

Synop­sis:

   Like Bulb (the first one in the Pinho­le Series ins­ta­lla­tions) when this hand­ma­de film is scree­ned, the lens of the pro­jec­tor is off. It is a 16mm mag­ne­tic sound film-loop, “pinho­led” fra­me by fra­me whe­re every hole has a slightly dif­fe­rent size in dia­me­ter than the last one to pro­du­ce the opti­cal chan­ges cau­sed by dif­fe­rent diaph­ragm aper­tu­res on the pro­jec­ted ima­ge of the lamp (of the pro­jec­tor) on a nearby screen: focu­s/out-of-focus on the one hand, and brightness/darkness on the other.
