Wavelengths 6 (when It Was Blue)  [2008]
When It Was Blue
DirectorVanessa O'Neill, Jennifer Reeves
CastSkúli Sverrisson
This year's edition of Wavelengths wraps up in pairs: two double 16mm overlapping projections united in their study of colour, subject and form. Vanessa O'Neill's silent Suspension (USA) is composed of a roll of black-and-white film and a toned roll, resulting in a diaphanous blue creation with seemingly endless hue gradations. Jennifer Reeves's When It Was Blue (USA/Iceland) was initially shown at the Museum of Modern Art in 2005. Several residencies and finishing grants enabled Reeves to re-edit the original material and to shoot, optically print and paint additional footage. The result is the completion of a formidable three-and-a-half-year collaboration with composer-musician Skúli Sverrisson, music director to Laurie Anderson. When It Was Blue substantially expands Reeves's impressive 16mm visual repertoire in a virtuosic display of luminescent overlapping imagery and it will be presented live, with Reeves projecting the film and Sverrisson performing the soundtrack.
