(Totality remix)

by Johanna VAUDE
2005 / Super 8mm / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 7' 08

Synopsis : Totalité remix has been shot one image after another, based on already existing images, paintings, photos : Vésale’s “the écorchés”, drawings by Agrippa de Nettesheim and Leonardo da Vinci, photos by Muybridge, Marey, Londe, architectural plans… These still images are knocked together to give the movement, rhythm and echo necessary to refer to these times where Man has tried to find through research, science, philosophy and art the concept and sentiment of Totality. The editing image by image allows us to explain the connections that link each image, their contents and their symbols. Like a synthesis, through the prism of Totality, the film shows all these questions and researches about Man and his world.

Technique : made from a Super-8 film with hand painting film, Hi8 video, re-shot in digital video, edited and re-worked in DV (special effects, double exposure, “colourimetry”: changes in tone and colour in DV sequences…)
