Experiencing Interruptions?

Traffic III

Traffic scenes combined with distorded images of a building.

Traffic III means about 150 Adox Scala slides and 8.5 m of Cine8 Regular 8 film hand developed in "Chromaflex" process inspired by Richard Tuohy and Kathryn Ramey. As there are no "recipes" how to develop both films, I had to experiment quite a bit to get the correct times.

My daughter helped destroying the pictures of the middle part. This was quite fun.

Director Biography - Malte Bartels

I started working with 8mm film (Regular 8, Super 8 and Single 8) in 2020. My father-in-law's heirloom (a bulky, obviously magically charmed Super 8 sound camera and some old still cameras) changed my brain structure instantly by touching it. A lifetime of visits to contemporal art exibitions made it clear: I can and will do experimental stuff myself. I'm still experimenting with filming, developing, physical and chemical ways of changing film. I haven't reached my goal and hopefully never will. One experiment will lead to the next.
