FILMSTRIPPERS AND THE ELECTRIC EYE
New 35mm Photographs by Delf Timschal Gravert
Opening Reception: Friday, June 27, 7-10pm
Exhibit Runs: June 27 – July 2, 2014
Filmstrippers and the Electric eye is a chance for me to show work taken in artificial light.The works are taken from party shots, city lights, television, planned and a few unplanned accidents, and finally gems ,both expensive and false, but equal in value to my electric eye: the film camera. This idea of this show started with Las Vegas photographs I’d done, and had links to photographs I’d taken in Winnipeg with ‘broken’ cameras that bled the light throughout the frame of the filmstrip, and portrait experiments of leaving the shutter open a long time and then using a flash. The Sunset Strip. I go there for my respite job sometimes. Four times so far. We stay at the Circus Circus hotel cause it’s central. It’s the one with the rotating gambling bar from the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. That bar is now an ice cream bar or something. I hated Las Vegas a little less each time, finding ways to get salvation in the amusement park of tourism that I’m not used to being from Winnipeg which has no tourists. I was panicked. I felt especially sensitive to the consumptive horror I’d feel in shopping malls, packaged deals and casino mazes. Armed with a camera , I’d be invincible to it. I could make my own logic composing within my camera, finding ways to translate my wonder and anxiety by studying the Strip architecture and the strange culture existing within. The size and grandeur of the advertising can be one of the best things about the Strip. If like me, you are attracted to anything flashing, strobing, colourful, reflecting, or geometric, there’s much to bserve. Moth to the flame, I’m attracted to the music of the neon signs and can easily be lulled into a hypnotic state by the rhythm of the flashing lights, traffic or pedestrians. I feel this work expresses a lot of the different states of electricity and emotion I feel in my life at any one time and the way I like to look at things in the world.
