16mm film loop, 2006
1m30s digitised video loop with sound
T3 is a work that literally cuts open the logic of storytelling in movies. In contrast to typical film editing conventions, FAXEN cut the actual 16mm found footage film strip lengthwise into three parts with a blade. Through this rearrangement, the film is compressed both spatially and temporally. The original scene bends to the physical intervention and highlights the materiality of film. T3 is shown three times in a loop.
