PUNTO [2013]

Digital video (variable) ​

PUNTO appropriates a scene from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film Accattone (1961) where the sub-proletarian protagonist stares into the camera lens and then unexpectedly spits in the direction of the viewer. This transgressive act is slowed down into single-frames that are slowly dissolved into each other offering a visceral and haptic experience of the photographic image.
