Eve Sussman and Jeff Wood on “whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir”

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Eve Sussman, director of  “whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir,” and Jeff Wood, her lead actor and collaborator, talk about the film. “whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir” delivers a changing narrative—culled from 3,000 clips, 80 voice-overs and 150 pieces of music—that runs forever and never plays the same way twice. It follows the observations and surveillance of a geophysicist named Holz—the character is controlled by the city and the factory he is working in, and course of the story is controlled by the machine that edits the film. “whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir,” is being shown at Cristin Tierney Gallery, 546 West 29th Street.
