Fences

Short abstract handmade film, creating optical illusions by exploring graphic fence and wheel structures. The title refers to the ‘fence phenomenon’, which was first observed in 1821 by the Scottish publisher John Murray (J.M.): the spokes of a wheel which are viewed in motion through a series of vertical bars, assume the optical illusion of a curvature of the spokes. This perception was the overture to the invention of film. It inspired José Vonk to create this film (6', 35mm).
