Brighton Cinecity 2019: I am Half Sick of Shadows

11.11 I am Half Sick of Shadows 2019 @ Brighton Cinecity and Fabrica Gallery

Brighton Cinecity host I am Half Sick of Shadows.
A Dirge for Ruins Cities in the voice of Earth

A cinematic ceremony composed in four acts based on Edgar Allan Poe’s poem The Bells. The poetic gesture functions as a performed amulet for protection, fine-tunes perceptions of Earth and humankind’s disjointed and entangled processes. The film score is made by creating translations of marks found on used shooting targets.

The work touches upon notions of revolution looking into its etymological origin; the revolving as the origin of a cyclical movement found in celestial bodies: ‘an instance of revolving, to revolve, revolvere; roll back, unroll, unwind; happen again, return; go over, repeat, ‘back, again’ ‘to turn over (in the mind or heart), meditate.’
