Ritual Film: Vibrations on the Analogue
THis film was created in the early summer of 2012 in response to a film 'call out' for a show. Well this isn't totally accurate as the film itself started out life a while before the call out came up, it was, though, the call out that spurred on the completion of this three part twelve minute ritual film. It gets its name from on going experiments that occur with the use of old analogue VHS tape recorders and the degenerative effect they have on the image. Indeed within these analogue glitched glimpses of the ritual can be found....
A QUOTE FROM THE CREATOR: “There is an overarching theme of decay, physically, in that the digital video is often degraded by computer compression and Analogue recording.” My films explore having the ‘broken’ thought patterns of the mental health condition termed Schizoaffective Disorder, which I was diagnosed with in 2002. No explicit references are made to this condition within the films, but the sense of unease (and unreality) which the condition brings about is examined. Through the breakdown and disintegration of the images and the erratic illogical narrative of the films, the condition is studied from a personal point of view.
“We fear the dark because anything could be hiding in it” This film draws on Esoteric, Occult and Mystic ceremonial Magick practices. Thelemic Rituals are evoked in a garish fractured pulsating explosion of sputum in which the viewers take part. The film is a Hymn to Pan."
