Inspired by Stan Brakhage's 1955 film Wonder Ring, I wanted to create a work that was void of sound and all modern digital video techniques in an attempt to explore the fundamentals of the moving image. Recur Ring gradually strips itself of all digital techniques and audio, eventually leaving only raw video to utilize within its narrative. Due to this process, I lost the ability to add to my narrative by altering aesthetics through colour correction, cropping and transitions. I could no longer rely on sound to dictate my pacing and to shape the experience of my images. Because of this, I had to look deeper into the imagery I was left with. I began to see the narrative already within the images. I became more aware of how they could be cut together to form narrative through their relation. Through this attempt to capture the roots of experimental film, I created a genuine reflection of my environment's maturation.
