:: Acid Reality ::

Acid Reality - film short - was created in collaboration with filmmakers Hayden Bannochie and Carlos Mancebo on a theme of acid rain in Sao Paulo. Celluloid films of the cityscape were dipped in sulphuric acid to produce a rainbow of distorted images. In a similar manner,  cassette tapes of Bossa Nova were also dipped in acid, played back and the results recorded digitally. These elements were then interwoven to create a drama of dissolution and rebirth - the cityscape and bossa nova band dissolving in a torrent of rainbow hues.

The film was premiered on the 12th of October 2008 at LSO St Luke’s as part of the Mapmaking event.
