Frenkel Defects is a programme of hand made 16mm films from artists working in DIY labs worldwide. These works have been curated by Kevin Rice from Process Reversal a lab collective based in Colorado USA. Kevin will be here to present the works in person.

Photosensitive film material is formed of a multitude of silver halide crystals, suspended in gelatine, without which we would not be able to record a latent negative image. A Frenkel Defect is a fault within the silver crystal structure of the film emulsion.

The most interesting aspect of a Frenkel Defect (at least in the vein of this program) is not specifically itís photo-mechanical properties, but the implication that film must be imperfect to function. In this sense, the silver halide might also be seen as a reflection of our films and ourselves, both which, arguably, necessitate a mode of imperfection. Further, we might also consider that projection is a form of photography, one whereby we, the audience, are the photosensitive material - full of defects - that is allowed to be imprinted with a latent image.

That latent image is in turned processed, printed, and projected, over and over again. That is this program...
