A Northern Portrait




A film projection performance by Lindsay McIntyre
2012, 25-30 min
A personal meditation on the Arctic in the form of a live 16mm looping performance on nine projectors. Images are layered with high-contrast mattes and colour textures on four 16mm projectors on a single screen, creating one changing image. The optical audio is looped as well, separate from the images, and mixed live on five 16mm projectors. 
A Northern Portrait has been performed at MONO NO AWARE V; at the Causey Gallery in Brooklyn, New York; Experimental Film Fest (EFF); and at The White Box Gallery in Portland, Oregon. It won Outstanding InterArts Performance at FAVAFest Awards in Edmonton in March 2013. It will be performed live at Metro Cinema's Anniversary celebration in Edmonton on September 13th, 2013.
