A system of analogue devices that are both a means of production and a set-up consisting of a self-produced projector an automated slide system and a lightbox
It is an experimental documentary film, made and unmade through a series of collaborative workshops and exhibitions, each functioning as an editing/screening room. Using a custom-made analog projector, the participants worked on the archival images, composing visual sequences and voiceovers. For this project we specially designed and made a set of analogue tools needed for the production and the stage of the project.
As part of Gudskul’s program for documenta fifteen, the collection of photographs produced and collected by Hendrik Freerk Tillema (1878-1952) during his time in the colonial Indonesia was reproduced in Jakarta, and made available to the contributors, who composed cinematic sequences by selecting, manipulating, editing and screening the materials, while providing the voice-overs.
