Featuring Jack Charney as the nude. All made with analog tools. Shot and mixed during the six months I lived and worked at the Vasulkas home/studio in Santa Fe. Two ¾” tapes of the nude were mixed through a key/stencil of third video (originally shot on 8mm film in Sienna Italy) to make one version of the combined images Video1+ Video2+stencil=A then this process was repeated Video1+Video2+stencil=B, then the combined images were mixed together again through the same stencil A+B+stencil=Mix1.
This whole process was repeated twice and then those two were also combined. Then later some of those mixes were transferred to Betacam and slowed down. The final tape contains excerpts from a variety of the previous combinations with 2, 4 and 8 layers.
