Time and cinema as art forms.
Cinema and art as forms of time.
The camera is not only a recording device. It is a way of seeing the world, a way of being in the world, a way of negotiating progression, surface, recognition….
A Disturbance of Shadows is an illustrated lecture in video that presents eleven cinematic reflections on the nature of time. The video begins and ends with the question: “Do you consider time to be a hostile enemy or intimate companion?”
