Robert Rouncefield > Underwater Automobiles

NOTES...
Rouncefield acquired an underwater Super 8mm camera from his parents on his 17th birthday in 1972. He and his friends would often swim in the lakes near his home in Montana. One part of a lake was used to dump old automobiles. They would be disposed of by simply letting off the brakes and allowing them to roll quietly down a slight incline into the lake. Swimming there one summer, Rouncefield discovered what resembled an underwater car-park and decided to film it. He also took his girlfriend along and persuaded her to swim underwater. This juxtaposition produces a strange and beautiful film - the submerged cars, the classically beautiful young woman swimmer, the moving light from the sunlit surface. The rich colour of the Super 8mm film and its grain lend the brief sequences a luscious, impressionistic appearance.
