‘Arnulf Rainer, Peter Kubelka (1958-1960)
The origin of this work is from of the metric classic film “Arnulf Rainer” (Peter Kubelka, 1958-60, Austria, 6’24” [9.216 frames], b / w, sound, 35 mm.). Like a remake of it, but using the technique of “film quartet”, is considered as a particle physicist minimum-time drilling, a quarter of the 35mm frame (every 24 frames form one second of time).
We went from 9.216 frames (384″ = 6′ 24″) of the original to 2.304 frames (96″ = 1 ’36”) in the new version.
The entire film is transferred to pentagram, which is the basis for the notation related to this film technique, forms the second piece of the ‘film quartet’ trilogy.
The film, with the collaboration of chance itself contains 16 variations or 16 different ways to be projected, which would be 16 different versions of the same.
Four in the “correct” direction with variations of the four perforations (sprocket holes).
Four in the reverse direction with variations of the four perforations.
Four in the “correct” direction with the film flipped and variations of the four perforations.
Four in the reverse direction with the film flipped and variations of the four perforations.
