INTERVAL engages in the analysis of the space of the interval, to explore its functions and possibilities as a crucial figure involved in the process of meaning-making. My personal interest relies on interval within the field of film as a practice based on montage.
I have structured my text under two modes and three paradigms from where to look at the space of the interval. Two interval modes: relational and constitutive. Three paradigms or situations: fold, grid and cut. Three possibilities: to merge, to divide, and to rejoin. To ask: What is the essence of montage? Fold, grid and cut have served as a tool for me to be able to visualize, to articulate and connect various questions and engage with the interval in the field of my interest, film, as well as in other fields such as sculpture and painting.
The camera will film that what there is in between you and me. It won’t record either ‘You’ or ‘Me’. What there is in between ‘You’ and ‘Me’. That is all that exists. (David Testal)
