Black Board White Cube | 2016

Black Board White Cube is the first in a series of films made for a blackboard. Or so it seems. This (not so) typical school blackboard is comprised of a screen that is capable of playing around with the transparency of pigments. Throughout the course of the exhibitions all possibilities of drawing a cube in one continuous action without lifting the chalk and without retracing an already existing line are investigated. A mathematical impossibility. This odd catalogue of incomplete cubes plays on the tension between the three dimensional and the two dimensional.The movement is so minimal that the viewer would be forgiven for wondering if he’s dreaming or if the components of the board have actually changed. Black Board White Cube questions our perception as well as our expectations with regards to audiovisual media.
