In Light Trap film loops are abraded with sandpaper and scratched by gem polishing drills as they pass through projectors in each corner of the room. Out of a dark haze, shafts of lights are picked out, as the emulsion is scratched from the surface of the film. And simultaneously, out of the black silence, noise and audible scratches bloom into a bright drone. It’s not really an installation, or like a normal performance, it’s just an experience of real beauty.
