The maker writes of Hi 8, “One day and one night, the moon and the sun (the moon comes back). But what occupies the space – and the time – between them?
Analogic and digital, the physical impression and the numerical one. A swerve, in-camera editing, something that escapes.
The eyes towards/of light, looking at whatever comes between all things, the supports, the distances. At all the lacks.”
