Abstract
As its title indicates, JoAnn Elam’s Sprockets shows the sprocket holes of a film strip moving vertically and then horizontally across the screen. In light of Elam’s experimental work and especially in our digital age, this footage reads as a reflection on the physicality of the filmic medium, whose visual, hypnotic power here comes from the film object itself.
