TWO POINTS OF FAILURE (2013) is a conceptual experimental 35mm film that frames this demise (1976-2013) and takes as its primary subject matter Godard's failed prototype for the compact 35mm camera - a camera which suffered from myopia and was simply too loud. The film as you see it was constituted by dissolving negative emulsion in a chemical solution while recording the sounds of its own making. Through an extended, repeated looking, it functions as both an index of a disappearance and the remainder of the objects, techniques and medium which is now lost.
