Elisa Julia Gilmour’s Something In Someone’s Eye deals with children and adults filmed in a state of contemplation. It is a series of instants where the sitter becomes lost in a moment that alternates between subtle motion and photographic stillness. The installation, placed in a large dark space, is made up of five silent rear-projected 16mm films looping continuously.
With the use of 16mm colour reversal film, one of a kind and ever-changing, the transient nature of film itself relates to the transient nature of the gaze. Through the progressive destruction of the films the work brings life to a material and a subject matter that will inevitably disappear with time.
