whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir is a noirish film that never ends and never really begins. A computer dubbed “The Serendipity Machine” continuously shuffles 3,000 shots, 80 voice-overs, and 150 pieces of music, creating an ever-changing story involving Holz (Jeff Wood), a geophysicist stuck in a 1970s-era metropolis called City-A. Just as its citizens are subjected to time manipulations, Holz’s own fate is dictated by the machine editing this film. 2011, video.
Artist’s Cinema is made possible by generous support from Elizabeth Redleaf.
