Capturing Intimacy: Translating Intimate Moments in Film (2018)

Kerstin Parth

About this exposition

The aim of this arts-based research project was to examine the translation of intimacy in film and to create a transparency for the accompanying artistic decision-making processes. The research focus was to explore the processes involved in the production of moments of intimacy from an inter- and transdisciplinary perspective, and to study the contexts in which intimate moments are "translated" into moving images. Within this context, this project was particularly concerned with filmmakers' experiential knowledge about creating intimate moments within an artistic framework by employing different technologies and staging them in different ways, as well as with asking how this attributes meaning to these intimate moments. The framework of this research project includes an inter- and transdisciplinary workshop aimed at initiating a dialogue and exchange of knowledge between theory and practice. This workshop aimed to reflect together on the artistic (subjective creative) decision-making processes, to hone the research questions and lay the foundation for the artistic research that took place in the FILM LAB (film research laboratory). The establishment of a FILM LAB served as an innovative and open research space in which filmic translation and decision-making processes could be observed and rendered comprehensible by employing a "slow-motion procedure". In particular, the FILM LAB aimed to highlight the complexity of intimacy and sound out specific processes of translation by employing and reflecting various artistic and technical means and methods.
