A Scotiabank Nuit Blanche independent project with alumna JoAnn Purcell

JoAnn Purcell - Toronto, Canada

Public viewers are invited to participate in the remaking of a segment from the short film by director Luis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí, “Un Chien Andalou” (1929). Students will provide the basic structure by redrawing the frame in B+W as it is projected onto large format paper. The public will be invited to participate using colour markers to draw and write their own reactions to the sequence and nightmares in general, perhaps to cathartic effect! These redrawn composites will be photographed and each put into a sequential timeline. As the night progresses, the growing timeline will be viewed on a large TV. As the remade film segment is played back, the collective nightmares blur together over the re-drawn sequence! A second TV will show the original film (17 min) in its entirety, looped.

JoAnn Purcell, Program Coordinator of Illustration at Seneca College and partner at ACME Pictures will be working with students on this project.

Schedule
Every 18 minutes one second of the film frame will be projected onto large format paper. The public is invited to draw and write for as many frames as they would like. All marks made are acceptable and become part of the final work. Played back at real time, the marks will all blur in a mass of colour. After the event, the film will be viewable on it's website.
