Musings of leeway, an illusive figure emerges from the emulsion.
One strip of Super-8 film is reconstructed, taped onto 16mm and then re-filmed on the optical printer.
The effluence according to its new emulsion, becoming a reflection of its own action.
"As the depicted scene slides down again and again, IN EFFLUENCE ACCORD creates a sort of blur that belies the overall stability of the environment itself. That is, there is very little motion in the image, but the image itself is tumbling into a kind of stuttering echo of itself. As such, we turn to extra-diegetic artifacts, such as edge markings and the bright smear of the windows’ light, to orient ourselves. As with Hahn’s other films, we are asked to look at the light that forms the pictures before us, rather than to look through it. In this regard, Karissa Hahn’s films are small optical poems, using the very basic technologies of 16mm to explore otherwise hidden intensities of the material world." - Michael Sicinski
