Optic Nerve is a powerful personal reflection on aging and family. "Hammer employs film footage which through optical printing and manipulation is layered to create a compelling meditation on her visit to her grandmother in a nursing home. The sense of sight becomes a constantly evolving process of reseeing images retrieved from the past and fused into the eternal present of the projected image." John Hanhardt, Whitney Biennial 1985
