"‘Motion Pictures for Wall Frames: Vol 1’ is the first in a series of experimental films by filmmaker Lee Eubanks. The series is focused on infusing environments of motion and time inherent in cinema with traditional visual art themes. ‘Volume 1’ involves six scenes which each showcase a different genre of photography or painting interpreted through cinematic movement and duration.
Eubanks filmed the entirety of ‘Volume 1’ on one expired reel of 16mm film and edited in-camera. Each scene is comprised of a single stationary shot reaching the 30-second maximum shot length of the hand-cranked Krasnogorsk-3 camera. These sequences mimic both early filmmaking techniques and the essence of a picture frame through the elimination of camera movement, drawing focus solely to motion captured by the camera.
While 'Motion Pictures for Wall Frames' can be screened through traditional cinematic formats, the project is designed to be shown framed on a wall, either through projection or digital picture screen, much like a framed photograph or canvas. This concept originated from Eubanks’ desire to see works of cinema showcased similarly to how pictures and paintings are commonly displayed across the world.
