A day in the life of Johnny and Betty Patterson, 1939, Evanston, IL. This gem is one of the fantastic home movies I discovered in my grandmother's closet in 2006.
I am always looking for old images and old films on the brink of obscurity as a way to think about history and technology. This source material becomes my inspiration and I work to re-animate it and put it in a fresh context. This piece needed very little intervention and gives a rare glimpse into an idealized "day-in-the-life" of a young couple in their first home just before World War II.
