Using horror footage from a VHS tape of Hellraiser II , I’ve been working directly on the magnetic tape in order to create a chaotic and unstable imagery depicting some sort of narrative structure based on a nightmarish mind struggling with his inside demons and past traumatisms.
The main objective is to explore the possibilities of interaction on the medium itself ; how can I reach a certain point of control over my technique and use mistakes and accidents as creative tools. Using the materiality of the magnetic tape, I want to create a short experimental video based on a nightmare structure, depicting the confused state of the mind and the chaotic nature of it.
The sountrack has been made by Montreal's sound artist/musician Francesco de Gallo [http://hobocubes.bandcamp.com/]
