In the era of rapid and almost complete digitization of the moving image, EYE Filmmuseum draws attention to the special qualities of 16mm and 35mm celluloid film and the unique way in which this material is projected. EYE unites four artists (or artist duos) that incorporate, in multi-layered and complex and extraordinary films and installations, the peculiarities of celluloid and film equipment into their work.
The richly illustrated publication Celluloid presents the work of Tacita Dean, João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva, Rosa Barba and Luis Recorder & Sandra Gibson.Internationally renowned authors discuss the meaning of the use of analogue film in the oeuvre of the four artists in the context of the history of experimental film, analogue film in an era of abundant digital imagery, the magic of 16mm and 35mm film, and the film apparatus.
