    "I wanted to expose the technical processes behind visual effects, like prosthetics or makeup, that are used to simulate bodily sensations or to transfer ethereal instances of emotion onto the screen." - DORA BUDOR

    Many die-hard movie fans collect ephemera, such as props, skin appliances, theatrical sets, and storyboards, in an attempt to inhabit the world of their favorite characters. These objects are valued on secondary markets according to their uniqueness, production quality, and how, and by whom, they were used in the film. For Dora Budor, these ephemera become raw material for producing imaginative works that explore the use of visual effects. In TimeToDie, Budor worked with a special effects studio to reverse engineer bruises that appear on characters in Blade Runner, then placed them inside of transparent screens, exposing the "bone structure" of television mounting systems. The artificial bruises that once conveyed pain or injury are reborn in beautiful, fragile abstractions that expose the physicality of their cinematic illusion.
