Inquiry Into Time and Perception. Study #1

Canada | 2015 | 12 min
- Without dialogue
Cinematography: Bill Kerrigan
Distribution: Mouvement Perpetuel
Editing: Marlene Millar
Producer: Philip Szporer


These vibrant video vignettes of the moving body stimulate the senses, the intellect and the imagination. The intimacy created by the camera in this silent film by Philip Szporer combines with the liveliness of the cyclical works by artist Mariko Tanabe, and in particular with the power and complexity of the emotional expression. The videos attempt to delineate their subjects: their transcendency, transformation, and the spaces they inhabit.
