Punto y Raya Festival 2016

An optisonic exploration of a world of primordial shapes created through various chemical treatments of a Super 8 emulsion.


The soundtrack was created generatively using a self-built apparatus we call 'The Octopus.' Light sensors on the projection screen allow the film's spatiotemporal patterns to steer an analogue synthesizer via control voltages.
