Glitter for Girls

16mm and super 16mm to digital

4 min. | colour | sound | no dialogue |



Glitter for Girls is a handmade tattoo film that utilizes a camera-less direct-on-film animation approach to collage multiple layers of water tattoos (commonly used by children.)

Foglia, known for her tactile work on celluloid, this time intervenes on the 16mm polyester base of recycled film scraps and treats the water based tattoos as film emulsion - creating an abstract animation inspired by the playful legacy of Evelyn Lambart and Norman McLaren.
