A Hole in the screen is an installation piece consisting of two elements : a «vortex machine» located in the courthouse Gallery downstairs, and a live video projection in the Maya Deren Theater. The Vortex machine generates a small tornado of steam that is visible through the glass side of the apparatus. A videocamera underneath the botton platform records a spinning vortex as it rises through the cylinder; this image of a rotating hole is then projected live in the Deren Theater betwenn film screenings. Rather than existing simply as another movie, the hole opens up an imaginary void within the surface of the screen itself. excerpt of the Anthology Film Archives Program (New York 2000)
