A new short film I made with my friend and colleague Brian Baker. This is assembled from a test reel of Super-8 colour film that we shot in order to get the feel of our beautiful Braun Nizo 561 camera (a classic design by Dieter Rams manufactured in the late 1970s). It incorporates fragments of text adapted from Franz Kafka’s 1919 short story, ‘In the Penal colony’, and is inspired by Imogen Tyler’s current research on systematic, deliberate processes of social stigmatisation as a means of producing inequality and governing populations.
