Daïchi Saïto

EARTHEARTHEARTH

Canada 2021 , 30’

The footage filmed over two weeks in the Atacama Desert, in the Andes, was manipulated by the film-maker with photochemicals, superimpositions, and colour reversal. Thus, from the maximum of concrete – ‘earthearthearth’ - Daïchi Saïto obtained the maximum abstraction effects that make up his film. Saïto used a spring-wound 16mm Bolex, the camera that used to be popular among experimental film-makers. Equally experimental is the sound improvisation that supports the images, composed by saxophonist Jason Sharp. “To record his performance, we had a dozen microphones so as to be able to capture and isolate all those sounds happening at the same time […] I wanted the images to have an uncanny quality, to manifest a kind of presence that landscapes hide beneath the surface”.

(Daïchi Saïto)
