An interaction between physical objects/space and film. I was trying to find an unique way to use footage without projecting it onto a screen. I thought it would be interesting to use/film green liquid on a surface and key it out.

The liquid was created by mixing milk and food coloring. Too poor to buy paint.

As for the content/theme, it came to me while watching Stan Brakhage’s “Window Water Baby Moving”. I wanted to play around with archival footage.

Archival footage was taken from archive.org.

Douglas Gordon’s ’24 Hour Psycho’ Freezes actress Janet Leigh in Psycho, the Hitchcock classic.

For 24 hours straight, Washington’s Hirshhorn Museum screened Scottish artist Douglas Gordon’s video and installation work 24 Hour Psycho. The project slows Hitchcock’s classic 1960 film down to a glacial pace, stretching what was originally a 109-minute movie into a day-long art event.

Gordon, whose other work includes duelling projections of the “You talkin’ to me?” segment of Taxi Driver and a series of self-portrait still photographs, was on hand for the marathon projection. The event, part of the first North American survey of the Scottish artist’s work, drew the curious and the dedicated alike — some for a few minutes, and some for far longer.

NPR’s Susan Stone visited the museum at several points during the movie — including its pivotal shower scene.
