Luce. Tempo. Roma. is a time-lapse study of the motion of light and shadows inside and outside buildings and public spaces. This experimental work reveals patterns of city life that are tied to the movement of the sun, the complexities of reflected light, and how light and shadow are shaped by and reveal the urban environment. Two Bolex 16mm cameras with battery powered actuators and primitive analog timers were used. Two visits to Rome between 1997-1999 resulted in about 60 minutes of raw footage. This film traveled to many film festivals and received many prestigious awards.
