Burnt Tongue

 

Burnt Tongue (2013)

16mm, 9 minute kiss

 

Man: Jacob

Woman: Asta

Voice: James

 

A slow kiss is filmed at 4fps and played back at 25fps, giving the couple a flickering and de-humanised movement; an examination of the well-known kiss in film.

The sound is a conversation spoken by only one person, which is recorded with accidental digital artefacts/ distortion, covering a myriad of topics and personal histories.
