To “bless” is to “mark with blood”
The Morphology of Nature and Digital Imagery
1/2 of the film was shot using a hand cranked 35mm camera, a 1912 Bell and Howell 2709 — B. The other half of the film was shot in HD. The film was hand processed and using the colour matrix and gamma of a hand made emulsion (using my own tinted blood cells for grain — based on a 1930’s patent) the film was transferred to high definition video.
The more abstracted colour layers were created via the application of a quite imperfect arnold's cat map on some of the data driven coloured hand processed material.
