DESCRIPTION

From Here to Eternity (2013), a collaborative work by Jorge Macchi and Edgardo Rudnitzky, will be installed in the video gallery. In this two-channel video projection, Macchi interprets the title of the 1953 Hollywood classic “From Here to Eternity” literally and paradoxically: the projection is composed of two loops based on the few seconds that both the title of the film and the words “THE END” appear in the movie. As the two clips have slightly different lengths, they present an unsynchronized whole in which their soundtracks overlap into a chaotic sound mixture. With the help of computer software, musician Edgardo Rudnitzky creates a third audio channel in real time: the software takes musical notes from both original soundtracks and develops another sung by women’s voices.
