Nothing Stops What’s now in Motion

Jeroen Nelemans

The title is taken from a line of narration in the documentary film Microcosmos: le peuple de l’herbe (1996). This is one of the first films known for its poetic and dramatic use of close-ups of insects, with amplified sound effects. The subtle narrative of the film is de-stabilized, by separating each close-up as an individual clip and downsizing them to a 20/20 vision. The resulting audio of this piece is an amalgamation of the sounds from each individual clip. Each clip is looped and is organized in chronological order from left to right, creating a continuous “filmstrip” that acts itself like a specimen.
