“DaDA Ship” (00:04:22) by Gwendolyn Audrey Foster, USA 2019
A Dadaist time travel film. A ship on the oceans of time, born out of a dream. Our dreams offer unparalleled luxury travel, after all. A celebration of all things queer and dada. A hand-made split-screen experimental film using the technique of disrupted stereoscopy and collage détournement of found images.
My experimental and avant-garde work explores the hybrid space between film & video through collage and abstraction techniques. I create many of my films & videos from recycled “found” materials, combining elements of Surrealism, eco-feminism, punk, LGBTQ+ queerness, détournement, and chance editing (automatism). Chance is my favorite collaborator. I am dedicated to making deeply personal no budget films. I often compose the music and soundscapes for my films, which have been described as surreal, contemplative, and hypnotic.
