UNTITLED MIRROR 7
|Running time||7′ 46″|
|Production||A Fazzi Film|
It is deep winter on our hillside, Italy. The land is wet and frozen, the horses coats grew thick. As the temperature drops further, Sam lights his furnace to smelt a pot of bronze. As he pours the liquid gold, it feels as if we’ve slipped back through the centuries to the first time someone cast bronze on a mountain, and what a miracle that must have been!
Snow begins to fall. The horses head for shelter and Sam cuts facets from aqua marine mirror. From this raw winter landscape a glinting work emerges.
Filmed on an iPhone4, the smallness of which brings me closer to Sam’s work and all that is here.
