music: Jacaszek / video: Pedro Maia
Dare Gale video is based on super 8 shootings made by Michal Jacaszek and Pedro Maia at Porto and results from the work in the dark room using analogue means of light manipulation of the celluloid and superposition film. The super 8 footage and its manipulation of the film is the starting point of a visual exploration resulting from the interplay of vibrant patterns and the effect of light on the objects.
The manipulation transforms the viewing of the the video into a subjective experience, "the eye of the beholder", and the analogue manipulation leads to imperfections and unexpected results. It starts from the premise of conciliating sensations, uniqueness and unpredictability that begins as an organic entity which can be thus altered by new means.
