DIZZINESS — A Resource

Henry Hills
Failed States

“One of my favorite boyhood things (besides lying with my face in the cracks of the dock looking into the water at the fish or lying with my face in the grass looking into the dirt at the bugs) was spinning around until I fell over and then the world would spin in the opposite direction.” Henry Hills, 2008.

Descent

In the film Descent, a camera was lowered through the morning mist to the ground from a crane over a massive construction site at London’s Canary Wharf. By presenting the image upside down, Catherine Yass examines perspectival distortions, disorientating slowness and the gradual pulling apart of time, space and a sense of reality. Read More.

My Frontier Is an Endless Wall of Points

“My Frontier Is an Endless Wall of Points is a film animation created from the mescaline drawings of Henri Michaux. Of all Michaux’s work, these drawings are most frequently described as ‘a venture into foreign territory.’ They are seen as an exploration of a vast world on the borderline of words. My work is an attempt to literally animate this idea. I examine the traces of this journey in a series of rapidly moving images, making what could be termed a psychedelic documentary.” Joachim Koester, 2007.
