While films made without cameras typically use manual methods, this one day workshop invites participants to mark film using the full physical body and organic resources, joining the human pulse to film’s beat.

This reversible process generates distinctive patterns and rhythms, as film is made more physical while the body moves mechanically. Yet this work composed of traces and stains is not purely abstract, and we will consider correspondences between the physical and the material in terms of issues of strength and fragility.

Close attention to the properties of the medium are required: film's absorbability, its density, frames and its optical sound.

Intricacies of making will prompt critical reflection around questions of presence, the trace as image and the photographic index. (M.A. Doane and R. Krauss).

These theories will be discussed in relation to canonical films in which bodies are used as material, imprinted or collaged directly onto films surface, such as stan Brakhage’s Mothlight and Carolee Schneeman’s Fuses.
