Negative / Positive Film |

Negative/Positive Film is camera-less film collage composed of layers of 16mm erotic films from the '20s, '40s and '70s, interspersed with nature documentaries. This abstraction merges both the black and white film positive and its black and white negative counterpart - onto the same film base. The film presents itself as a remediation of female bodies dislodged from their original erotic context and torn from their male co-protagonists. The female body slowly merges with the body of the insects.
