This is an installation of a script typewriter and 16mm projector. I typed words onto the clear 16mm film. Each word must be repeated a minimum of 24 frames per second to be read. The words flowed poetically and were bound by the borders of the film so that words no larger than 6 letters long could be used. I was interested in the repetition as well, as the indentation the typewriter made onto the film. The language became part of the film, not just an addition to it or layered on top of it.
