Film Path, Camera Path, with Undertitles is an experimental media artwork by the celebrated Canadian duo Daniel Young & Christian Giroux. Commissioned by and first presented at InterAccess (Toronto), with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts’ Media Initiatives Grant, this exciting new project merges Young & Giroux’s sculpture practice with film installation using high tech design and manufacturing technologies.
Film Path, Camera Path, with Under-titles collides the projected image with the apparatus of its presentation and the moving image with sculpture. A film path is composed into a complex knot made possible by multi-planer geometric modeling, perimetric design, and additive manufacturing. Inside the path is a film looper that projects a one-minute long 3D rendering of a camera’s travel along the path that has been printed to 35mm motion picture film. Accompanying the projection is an LED screen that displays under-titled text prepared for the piece by poets, theorists, and artists.
Daniel Young & Christian Giroux have been making art together since 2002.
Film Path, Camera Path, with Under-titles is organized and circulated by InterAccess.
Exhibition runs until Oct 6 2019.
