THE LIGHT TOUCH DUST NEBULA

by Courtney HOSKINS
2001 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 4' 50

Like "Gossmamer Conglomerate," "The Light Touch Dust Nebula" is dedicated to Stan Brakhage. Made at the same time as "Gossamer Conglomerate," this film explores the fluid, organic shapes created by heat-sensitive (thermotropic or "heat changing") liquid crystal paint. This film complements and balances the angular, fluttering shapes in "Gossamer Conglomerate." I consider them twins; "born" at the same time. The liquid crystals in the paint respond to changes in temperature by changing color. As I printed the film, I lightly touched or blew upon the paint while it was in the film gate to produce the subtle "sparkling" color changes seen in many of the shapes. The rhythm of the film reflects the rhythm of my breath (and there are several brief pauses that indicate points at which was avoiding hyperventilation).
