[Bill Morrison, Just Ancient Loops, 2012]
This lecture discusses various practices that make use of found footage as their primary materials. Central to these experiments is the principle of montage. We briefly revise the basics of editing techniques and montage styles before examining how editing is used to create new forms of screen practices. The quality of the filmic image – the physicality of film and its decay – is also explored as a critical material in the works of Bill Morrison. We ask: what significance does the filmic image carries in these experiments?
