Nine Hamlet RGB
Vidéo | hdv, mp 4 | couleur | 5'55'' | USA | 2015
Nine Hamlet RGB engages a simple algorithm to destabilize the timing of the red, green and blue frame sequential display system while incorporating fragmented, appropriated “to be or not to be” excerpts from nine Hamlet films. The audio is the synced sound from the appropriated excerpts laced with low frequency binaural tonal pulsations. The physicality of the constructed optical and aural experience is seeking a mechanism of unconscious disarticulation. The ghosting of colors, evanesent Hamlets, and somatic tones are looking for a “dream-work” that can be ciphered, displaced, or not.
