IV Phases explores chance operations and interventions upon film through the use of multiple projectors and film loops. When played through optical sound projectors, the screen printed mark on the 16mm film creates it’s own soundtrack, determined by the pattern and opacity of the ink. IV Phases presents the seemingly infinite possibilities that are capable from a finite system, as film loops of varying lengths are continually falling in and out of sync creating continuously shifting imagery. When viewed from the back, the two-way mirror acts as a screen for the layered projection, while simultaneously becoming a projector/reflector that deconstructs the layers upon the opposite wall. The apparatus is now implicated in it’s own projection creating a volley between material and process. The projection allows an opportunity for further possibilities of chance operation through audience interaction.
