This work is made by shooting multiple pictures of a painting in progress then compiling them into a stop motion video. The subject is stuff: knick-knacks, record albums, books, shoes, photos, clothing, silverware, furniture. All of these things were once coveted but have since gone out of style and been thrown out. The abundance of these objects tells a story of our collective lives, a literal archeology of our current social beliefs and values. I photographed the interior of a junk shop in Brooklyn to use as source material and built compositions by overlaying, crowding and piling images. The videos play backward like an archeological dig, peeling the layers away, creating new visual associations as they progress. These works are intended to play on wall mounted screens next to their corresponding paintings. Sound design and music by Adam Steiglitz.
