Sinopsis: A shorthand study of the mythology of numbers, from 1 to 12. Scientific tradition is adopted then eschewed for rumours, legends and defunct theories from across the ages. The camera pens a year-long record of space, movement and the passing of time in historic locations around the world. This almanac of anthropomorphic numerology is recorded in-camera onto Super 8, using open exposure photography, light painting, light table animation, paper animation, hand drawn animation and more. Just like Richter nearly 100 years ago, we will discover that everything turns, everythingmrevolves and everything feels the deep score of time.
