Photon Film will be screened at Project/ Poetry at the Station House in Durham tomorrow evening. The event is curated by alexcarrsculptor and Lee Mackenzie. The event will intersperse video and live performance of spoken word, poetry and prose on the theme of ‘perspective’. Photon Film was made in collaboration with john_h00per under our collective name, Pale Blue Dot Collective. You can watch the film on my website.
Near the surface, a photon makes contact with the lens of an eye, where it is focused on a small spot on the retina. There, it is finally absorbed by a protein inside a cone cell, which sends an electrical signal to the brain and marks the end of the million year journey of a photon from the centre of the sun. We have produced a film of the result of physical light experiments, looking at light and interrupting the passage of photons, manipulating their pathways and combining a sound-scape to fully immerse the viewer. This film offers a new perspective of space, our sun and one of the fundamental elements of life; light
