ABOUT THE ARTIST


VIKTORIA SCHMID (VIENNA, AUSTRIA)

Schmid’s 16mm film installation is based on James Clerk Maxwell’s method of additive colour-mixing that led to the creation of the first colour photograph in 1861. A section of cloudy sky has been filmed thrice on black and white film, each time through a differently colored filter (red, green, blue). Projected through corresponding filters, the images appear on three screens in degrees of overlap, resulting in a layered distortion of the conventional image of blue sky and white clouds, seeking to reveal the cinematic apparatus behind the composition. The mechanics of the film image become a palpable experience for the viewer. The clouds’ ephemeral state of constant motion reflects the variable nature of the image’s final appearance. Scratches and dirt marks on the hand-processed material and variations in projector speed underline the impression of fragility that is an inherent component of works on analog film.
