My interest in the individual frame as constituting the core of filmic creation found early expression in several works based on static images or photographic frame enlargements.
In the case of Ballett 16, 256 frame enlargements of a continuous dance movement were dissected into 16 segments, each consisting of 16 frames. These segments were rearranged and rephotographed frame-by-frame. The resulting synthetic composition of movement was rephotographed off a screen running at twice its normal speed in order to accelerate the final film.
