First recordings

2012

 

About

In this video work I am talking about the video deflection and loss between two different video formats (4x3 and 16x9), analyzing how format can change the composition of visible image, aesthetics, and content when the first film recordings become digitized. This work covers the period from the appearance of the first moving image, documentary film frames, up to the first movie with a sound track when video gradually becomes 'entertainment'.
