Made Mad

Reflective material sits on a rotating motor, hung from the ceiling. The motor rotates the film in a continuous motion – like the motion of a conveyer belt. A light source will shine on the film while it moves, creating a beautiful projection/reflection. This piece will be coupled with recorded sounds of friction between metal, both raw recordings and some altered w/ a synthesizer. 

The projected reflection will show tension, pulling and stretching which is a representative of the human condition and its perception of reality of what is, or isn’t.
