Mountain Time – Films from the Interior of North America
Taylor Dunne and Eric Stewart are artists currently living in Colorado (USA). They share an affinity for 16mm filmmaking, they use photochemical processes as a means to explore the interconnectedness of time, history and the landscape. They are currently collaborating on a film investigating the history of uranium mining and nuclear weapons testing in the American Southwest.
The program comprises camera-less films and personal documentaries. They try to connect personal experiences with some parts of the North American landscape, history and nature. All shot in 16mm, it seems they have a mission for simplicity but also for the complications of Native American heritage. The two filmmakers are currently touring Europe with this program, and giving classes for chemical manipulations of analogue film.
Furthermore, on June 24 & 25, Taylor Dunne and Eric Stewart will teach the workshop LIFT OFF: An Emulsion Lift Workshop at LaborBerlin. Please contact LaborBerlin if interested.
The artists will be available for Q&A. Curated be Klaus W. Eisenlohr
