Zoe Bellof e a vida secreta dos filmes

Após ouvir uma breve explanação de meus interesses de pesquisa, o Prof. Z sugeriu que eu conhecesse o trabalho da artista Zoe Bellof, que dedica-se a um campo semelhante ao que eu pretendo explorar. Alguns extratos do um ensaio inspirador disponível em seu website.
“I’ve always secretly felt that making these QuickTime movies was more like “casting a spell” that conventionally shooting a film.”
“I am not interested in being literal or illustrative but instead letting the past breathe through small discarded objects.”
[…] “one must remember that in the 19th century there was a certain obsession with the question of whether a machine itself could possess a soul. ( just as people today speculate as
to whether a computer could be have consciousness).”
“In this light all media technologies could be said to be shot through with this idea of artificial resurrection, with time and death.”
“Zoe works with a wide range of media including film, projection performance, installation and drawing. She considers herself a medium, an interface between the living and the dead, the real and the imaginary. Each project aims to connect the present to past so that it might illuminate the future in new ways.”
