10mins colour silent Super 8
film performance using a hand-held mirrored screen

this documentation was filmed at a retrospective
screening in Montreal.

The screen is white one side and mirrored the other, and is used by the performer to either 'catch' the projected image, or reflect it around the cinema space. The image on film is of the same activity happening in a sunlit landscape. Visual echoes are set up between the live event and the recorded one. This performance can include directional sound aimed at the screen, the movements of which bounce the sound around the space.

The performance can take place outside at night, whereupon those parts of the film not 'caught' by the screen disappear into the dark.
