In 1963, the experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage released Mothlight, made in part by pressing moth wings between two clear strips of film and then projecting this as a film print. An interesting aspect of this film is that the moth wings, as can be seen from the filmstrip image, often run over two or more frames. Even in this seemingly unimportant detail, the work challenges the idea of the film frame as a means of sampling and fixing reality. Brakhage’s images in Mothlight do literally break out of the frame. Our imagistic reality cannot be contained, neither in thought, nor in frames.
