Inspired by early stereo imaging and the clash and collusion of socioeconomic forces, this work of expanded cinema seeks to dismantle cinematic codes while foregrounding projector and light as sculpture: a conscious corruption of and interference with the apparatus to evoke the unexpected; reshaping representation into the realm of material and space. Using colour gels, masking, lens interference and projector movement in tandem with an exploration of binocular disparity, perspective, patterning and the film surface itself, Apparitions explores the transitional space between image and abstraction, nature and culture.

Alex MacKenzie is a Vancouver-based media artist working primarily with 16mm analog film equipment and hand processed imagery. He creates works of expanded cinema, light projection installation, and projector performance. Alex was the founder and curator of the Edison Electric Gallery of Moving Images, the Blinding Light! Cinema and the Vancouver Underground Film Festival.

Co-Presented by the WNDX Festival of Moving Image (www.wndx.org
