Sinisa Kukic - Super 8 Experimental film 2006 5:15 min San Francisco, CA
The making of Pump involved mounting a Super 8 camera to various parts of a fixed gear bicycle and riding around the city of San Francisco. Inspired by the city symphonies of Dziga Vertov, Pump molds the urban energy of their compositions with a more visceral moving perspective. The physicality of a bicycle offers a personal viewpoint that humanizes movement through industrial spaces and hybridizes traditions of hand-held and automotive camera movement.
