Joost REKVELD / 2002 / 35mm / 12min.
#23.2 deals with the multiplication of light beams through mirrors and kaleidoscopes. The composition is based on symmetries and inversions of proportions and gestures throughout the film and the film is inspired by concepts found in medieval and renaissance optics. It was made with a set-up in which elementary optical principles were used to generate images. These images are caused by the interplay of light waves directly onto the emulsion, not using lenses as they are used normally to reproduce a scene outside of the camera.
