The 16 mm film Searching for White is mixing colors by using the medium of film, referring to Newtons color and light theory. We see a white wall in an industrial building, on which a three meter high (imperfect) color wheel is painted. Then slowly the image starts to tilt and rotate around it’s axes. Speeding up and thereby almost mixing the wheels colors forming green. During the spinning a black dod appears in the age, Mater starts painting the wheel changing the colors one by one, shifting the wheel from green to blue, and eventually after speeding up to almost white.
