Arrow Catcher by Peter Wiehl
1978, 16mm transfered to dvcam,

Peter Wiehl is a New York based artist that during the 70's and beginning of the 80's did really interesting experimental films mostly related to performance.
"Arrow Catcher" was filmed with the help of a high speed military camera. It shows the artist aiming arrows to a complex Plexiglas structure. This device captures and suspends the arrows as in an abstract composition.

"A triumph of authenticity."
