“Love and the Epiphanists (Part 1) is the first part of an ongoing 35 mm film project with live performance components, including wide-screen anamorphic 35 mm film, 35 mm slides, digital video, audio recordings and live spoken text. The films used are largely sourced from my collection of 35 mm Hollywood movie trailers from the past 20+ years, using a hand-made contact printing process that allows me to repeat, reorder, reverse, double-expose, stain, misalign, twist and otherwise strangle the images. The result is a chaotic narrative and love story set against a future time known as the Epiphany – the moment in history when the effects of climate change became irreversible and undeniable.” (Scott Stark)
