Pwdre Ser: the rot of stars
The film particles in Pryce’s analogue film experiment move across the screen like stars over the horizon. The pictures, which seem like a magical substance, are given the name ›Pwdre ser‹, the Welsh name for a jelly-like substance which, according to local folklore, spreads out on the ground and leaves after a shower of stars. 16-mm handcraft meets cosmic magic.
