LIGHT READING 1500 cinematic explosions

Elizabeth McAlpine

The whitest frame from 1500 different cinematic explosions has been taken and compiled together to make a minute long white flickering movie the sound track has become an agitated micro sound due to the editing process.

"McAlpine's movie LIGHT READING 1500 cinematic explosions offers the viewer an endless climax. Splicing together hundreds of detonations from action movies the viewer is confronted by a continuous wave of white light occasionally punctuated by a blaze of yellow and an iconic building. Suggestive of a nuclear flash or the celestial vision of a born again Christian, the flickering screen could also be interpreted as a portal to another dimension."
