A distant relative gave me a collection of home movies, shot from 1946-2006 by a man named Dean. After months of sifting through 104 hours of Dean's footage, I began editing a series of short videos. In 1962, Dean got a zoom lens. Like a kid with a magnifying glass, Dean immediately engaged with this new tool for intense seeing, frequently zooming in to examine all sorts of subjects. I began isolating this footage, resulting in an incredibly idiosyncratic archive. For the video titled Zoom (Dean, 1962-2006), I chronologically stitched together all footage involving a zoom movement, shown in fast motion.
