LIGHT LICKS: BY THE WATERS OF BABYLON: THIS MAY BE THE LAST TIME
2011 | Super 8 | Silent
LIGHT LICKS are a series of films, which are made frame by frame often by flooding the camera with enough light to spill beyond the gate into the frame left unexposed. LIGHT LICKS are ecstatic flicker films inspired by jazz and mystic visionary practice.
BY THE WATERS OF BABYLON is a sub series within the LIGHT LICKS, inspired by Psalm 137, a meditation on the experience of forced exile.
THIS MAY BE THE LAST TIME was shot right before Dwayne's stopped processing Kodachrome, and the last time I shot Kodachrome for a LIGHT LICK. It was right after Thanksgiving weekend and the light is very much late November right before the Winter Solstice. Existence equals thin ice.
