SKYSCRAPER FILM is a camera-less handmade film collage created from scraps of 16mm orphan films from 1970s. Originally produced to promote tourism in North America these films are remediated by the filmmaker to create an abstract collage via the Emulsion Lifting/ Emulsion Grafting technique.
With this technique the filmmaker lifts by hand the emulsion layer from the film strip and subsequently places it on a different film strip, this way a celluloid collage is created, then re-animated.
