Paul Clipson - Landscape Dissolves (Selected Films 2009-2016)

Paul Clipson (1965-2018) was a San Francisco-based filmmaker and experimental film artist, who often performed live, improvising with sound artists and musicians.

“My approach to making films is to bring to light subconscious preoccupations that begin to reveal themselves while filming in an improvised, stream of consciousness manner. Aspects of memory, dreams and recordings of the everyday are juxtaposed with densely layered, in-camera edited studies of figurative and abstract environments vast and small, all within a flowing formal and thematic experimental aesthetic that encourages unplanned-for results. I employ a mainly handheld camera, often set at the two extremes of the focal spectrum, macro and telephoto (extreme macro close-up, extreme long shot), which maximizes the saturated textures of Super 8mm, the format I most frequently shoot in. The films are a personal recording, like a diary or essay, rendering color, light, focus and shadow in many forms, in the hope of allowing for un-thought, unexpected elements to reveal themselves. To a large degree, the editing in the films is “in camera”, meaning that many of the shots and their order are as they were conceived at the time.” (Paul Clipson)
