Self-Portrait in Mausoleum
U.S.A. / 1:00 / 2009 / silent / colour / No dialogue
Refractions and reflections shot in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery: the half-life of death's advance. Stained glass invokes the sublime in its filtering of light energy, a pre-cinematic cipher announcing a crack between worlds. "All the stars in heaven" radiate before expiring; the passing moment of a moment's passing is the most elusive and hence the most beautiful.

Part of Ross Lipman's experimental documentary compilation, "the perfect heart of flux," also available for distribution through CFMDC.
