Locative filmmaking with a cellphone
Found art always has one foot in locative media in that it is linked to place and that link is not arbitrary. Why a piece of found art is here instead of there asks us to look deeply into and around the space we’re inhabiting. in turn, this connects us more closely to that space. This film by Jason van Genderen could be called “found typography,” and was shot on location entirely on a cellphone using the internal phone video camera. This film won first prize at Tropfest in New York.
