Cardon+McNulty 1.2.3 Smorfia

1.2.3 Smorfia (Naples, Italy)
2014. HDV. 1’45″

Marc McNulty and I were invited by Boston’s kijidome project space and collaborative to make a video in their temporary green screen room. We’d just been to Naples, Italy for a trip and were inspired to include some sounds, images, and dreams we brought back with us, while experimenting for the first time with keying images in video.

The characters that appear in this video are adapted from Neapolitan folklore: the witch (La Befana) who makes an appearance on Epiphany every January, Pulchinella, the masked rascal clothed in white (and the origin of the character Punch). These figures are evident everywhere during end of year celebrations.
