Surfacing

An inch of skin is all that separates us from the world; objects in the environment likewise have their own skins, defining and separating them from their surroundings. This outermost surface is the immeasurably thin physical coating that separates what we are looking at from all other beings in an environment. Like our vision, the camera further highlights the shells of things by inevitably flattening what it records, then encoding them into another surface—the projection. These films zoom in on the surface of things, abstracting and examining until distinction between various outer appearances dissolve altogether.
