Double Noir‘s artistic project explores the intermedia relations of drawings and films through the process of creating audio-visual animation. Deconstruction, the processing of film sequences taken from the eighteen noir films by Hemphrey Bogart, and their transposing into a drawing medium, a new film narrative is being formed. The drawing process is preceded by a thoughtful selection of film sequences whose individual frames are plotted with chalk on black school boards. The drawing is then recorded by the imaging process and then deleted, in order to draw the following drawing on the same substrate. Each panel represents a separate film sequence, and the only preserved material drawing document of this complex process is in fact the drawing of the last frame from each of the sixty sequences of the narrative.
