Autoritratto all' Inferno, 2021, 8mm to digital, single channel, colour, 3 min.



This hybrid piece is a collage created assembling both analog and digital material.
Several layers of 8mm film and disparate fragments come together to create a self-portrait of the director.

The first layer is an 8mm "orphan film" (found footage) from the 1970s, entitled "Woman dancing with a Dog" and found by chance at an antiques auction.

The second layer is an 8mm film that has been buried underground for a few weeks and subjected to a natural decomposition process. While being covered in earth, the film emulsion has been eaten by the bacterias in the ground, plus some bacterias from yeast and sugar. 

The third layer is an 8mm home movie that has been first decayed in soil, using the aforementioned technique, then hand-painted with film ink.
