Untitled (eclipse)

Single channel, 16mm film, silent; 13 min.

A single-channel silent film Untitled (Eclipse) (2019) is shot on 16 mm in an open field in Nebraska in 2017. The film depicts a total solar eclipse. During the eclipse, the sun seemingly transforms into a black hole in the sky—a void or negative space. The work is projected on a large angled screen, amplifying the residue of heavy film grain as well as the entanglement of astronomical phenomena, technology, and representation.
