Light Support

by Saxon, George

Film: 16mm 1977


Second 400' load. Continuous take... Further exploration of the film studio. Encounters between performer, functional equipment, such as lighting, cables, plugs etc, which are arranged to form the set. The obstacle course towards the power box for the lights illuminating it. The source of power is the icon. The performer is blindfolded feeling his way with a steel stick along the lengths of cable towards the illuminate box. To remove the light from the film. Then to lose himself in another part of the space - then to ask for instruction. The cameraman directs in the dark, attempting to guide the performer back towards the power supply - some mumbles in the dark. To re-illuminate the film before the film runs out...
