“REQUIEM // 102”

art and life…

102 minutes, 102 frames…

by NICHOLAS ROMBES

October 27 2010 marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream. To mark that and to extend the super-charged, experimental aspects of the film, REQUIEM // 102 examines/explores/riffs on/detours from/responds to/aggravates/supplements one frame from each minute of the film. 102 minutes = 102 frames. Inspired by the creative constraints that have produced projects such as Longshot! Magazine and 50 Posts about Cyborgs, the project aims to push the boundaries of the medium and experiment with new ways of thinking and writing about film. You do not need to be a fan of the film to participate. This is an archaeological survey of the film, not an ode to it. There are no editorial constraints on the approach you take to your assigned frame, except that it be compelling.

Each contributor is assigned one frame from the film. Each frame will be taken from a separate minute from the film. For instance, frame #52 will correspond to minute #52. Contributors will write something “about” the frame in somewhere between 200 and 2,000 words, or create a visual response (i.e., a poster, an image, a graph, etc.). The length of the contribution is not as important as its power. How contributors decide to respond to the frame is entirely up to them. The project launched November 1, beginning with a frame from minute #1.
