Back and Forth, Michael Snow and Allan Kaprow, 1969

Snow’s film focuses on the mechanics of the camera. The frame goes back and forth and up and down, and increases in speed so that the image becomes blurred and incomprehensible. It calls attention to the particularity of the camera frame and it’s techniques. We become aware of its limitations,  it’s static and singular view point and what is cut out beyond the edges of the frame.
