Untitled (Silver)

2006, 11 min, b&w, sound

Takeshi Murata employs precise digital processing to create astonishing hallucinatory visions. In Untitled (Silver), Murata subjects a snippet of footage from a vintage horror film (Mario Bava's 1960 Mask of Satan, featuring Barbara Steele) — to his exacting yet almost violent digital manipulations. The seething black and white imagery constantly decomposes and reconstitutes itself, slipping seductively between abstraction and recognition.

Soundtrack: Robert Beatty, Ellen Molle.
