16 mm, b/w, optical sound
What does the bark of a tree sound like? What does the scale of a fish sound like? Which noises can be extracted from silent images?
By contact printing photographic images of different organic structures - from branches to moss to bones - directly onto a 16 mm film, Nana Thurner and Olena Newkryta attempt to examine the relationship between visual material and its sonic transmission. Beginning with the image of messy fur and ending with a clear structure of a skeleton, Film Still composes a rhythmic soundtrack of supposedly still organisms as it develops a moving image of static photographies.
