SUBSTANCE IS THE WORD

by Marc PELLETIER
2010 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 16' 10

Inspired by a sudden interest for linguistics, Pelletier approached the making of this film as though he were trying to teach his camera to speak. By animating frame-by-frame to the rhythms of the spoken word and deconstructing the symbols and semantics of the written word, the resulting images are above all else a testimony to the arbitrary nature of language and its flawed categorisation of reality.
