ABOUT Paper Nautilus, Amber Goodwyn, 4.5 mins, 2005 (16 mm, silent):
I grew up in the Bahamas and have never returned. Mapping a place from memory, this film uses family photographs to illustrate the exchange of sand for snow.
“As the impracticality of Celluloid as an instrument of image taking pushes it into the realm of craft, collectives of crafts people have sprung up, working in unison to create work etched in alchemy, and burnt with light. These collectives often work together as both practitioners of Celluloid arts, and exhibitors of work from across the globe to their communities. Two such collectives are creating work in Eastern Canada. They are the Double Negative Collective in Montreal, and the Loop Collective in Toronto. Dedicated to producing work that explores film as craft, these artists inspire each other to create films that develop regional characteristics. With this, experimental work gains a new sense of familiarity as it radiates the creative energies that emanate from collective inspiration.”
