Baily's beads

A VR EXPERIMENT
BY ISADORA VIEIRA

THE FILM tests the possibilities of a high contrast - hyper insensitive - film stock and how it silhouettes around a human figure. The film was manually processed and the chemistry supposed to reveal the images often worked to veil them. The silver halides that operate to reveal light are engulfed by a dense chemistry that unevenly eclipses the dancing figure.

 

The work here is presented in VR to grant a sensorial experience similar to early film projections -  confounding the audience's senses and offering a new perspective of moving images.

Isadora & Carlos are looking forward to sharing this work in film festivals around the globe. Please consider supporting our efforts as we cover submission fees to advance film in this medium.

ARTISTIC STATEMENT BY ISADORA

My work is often about women. Their unique stories and how they see their place in the world. I strive to give shape to an earning I find in my soul and in the women around me. I strive to contribute to a new mythology of our desires, feelings and cycles. The stories already told are about us, but not yet ours. My work is my personal struggle to see myself represented in the collective consciousness.
