In" One Way Out" (2009), the film’s materiality, malleability and fragility are stressed by the fact that instead of being reeled by a looping plate, a suspended suction mechanism moves through a pipe that enhances the fluttering sound. The image projected is an ever-changing random array of scratches and marks left by the friction of the celluloid against the tin pipe during the exhibition.
