E-Ticket, 2019

35mm or DCP // Sound // Color // 13 Minutes  

A film sixteen thousand splices in the making. E-Ticket is a frantic (re)cataloguing of a personal archive and an opportunity for rebirth to forgotten images. 35mm photographs and moving pictures are obsessively cut apart, reshuffled then tape spliced together frame by frame in evolving patterns. Views swipe between a school trip to India then culminate with a protest of a 2005 World Trade Organization summit in Hong Kong. In a exploration of the absurdity of the filmmaking process with its extension to global trade, this is my handmade means of distilling an unending flow of information into a more manageable form. My photographs may have all be cut up and mixed around, but at least they’re all in one place now. A retelling of Dante's Inferno for the streaming age; a freedom of movement reserved for the modern cloud.
