Abstract

Flimmer’s narrator ‘never wrote back’, but the film engraves her words on the affair’s detritus: cigarettes, spilt milk, a doll, typewriter keys and the film’s surface. Flimmer thus uses nostalgia for technologies of indexical inscription, such as the typewriter to respond to emerging digital practices such as the RED camera.
