FILM GUIDE FILMPIECE FOR BARTLETT
This short, abstract video is a tribute to the late experimental filmmaker Scott Bartlett. A fountain in the MoMA courtyard becomes a reflection upon Bartlett's quote: "There is a pattern in my film work that could be the pattern of a hundred-thousand movies. It simply is: Repeat and purify; repeat and synthesize; abstract, abstract, abstract." This video was created with live footage, hand-painted filmstrips, and paper.
