The Griffith Circle

video / b&w / stereo / 4:00 / 2002

Recycling a scene from a D.W. Griffith short, THE GRIFFITH CIRCLE explores the enigma of the cinematic space that dominated classical film practices for over a century. It turns a simple and often neglected act of screen direction into a playful meditation on spatial construction and a symbolic game of cinematic “hide and seek”.
