Description

Alternating among one, two, and four screens, Meter features close-ups of artists Sally Potter, Mattijn Seip, Pim van Isveldt, and Mike Dunford from different angles at fast speed. This creates a wide, complex portrait through the accumulation of layers in the viewer’s mind. Portraits is influenced by structuralist-formalist art that explores the nature of film as a medium.
