Project: "The Galilean Satellites"
Role: Director, producer
Project Details: By far the most popular of my four-series 16mm film project dedicated to friend and mentor Stan Brakhage. The series employs recordings from the Voyager space probes, as well as more recent missions to the Jovian system. The sounds range from musical to chaotic. An abstract expression of the “personalities” of both the moons and the gods with whom they share their names, the series makes use of various plastics and liquid crystals, heated, stretched and tormented into life, just as these mini-planets are. It debuted at the New York International Film Festival and went on to play at over a dozen festivals all over the world, including most recently in South Korea.
