Beats and Moves

Beats & Moves

An exploration of beats, sound and movement through Vertov’s society-style editing. This piece captures fragments of reality from wandering through the streets of Penang, Malaysia. These fragments are woven together to reveal a different type of reality, exploring the use of speed, overlap, and displacing images from their natural times and space.

To further explore this editing style, refer to Dziga Vertov’s Man with the Movie Camera (1929).
