Eiffel Trifle

by Botham, Paul

Film: 16mm 1972


In 1972 I burrowed myself into Paris with an even stronger determination, this time not for all of Paris, just to steal her 'diamond', The Eiffel Tower. My Bolex, sound recording film,... a technology to contrast this identifiable subject. Here banked against the monumentous image, I had to form a rigorous emphasis around my now accumulated processing data. In trying to attribute a visual rhyme in film on the baroqueness of geometrical animation, this film has languaged its own Sound/Silence. - P.B.
