Girl on Fire

Tony Lawrence

This found footage 8mm news reel film of underwater ballet has a red rust effect flowing through it. Known as oxidation reduction reaction or Redox – it is usually caused by peroxides emanating from aging wood found in film cardboard storage boxes. A sparse piano and electronic soundtrack adds to the languid pace.
