    The second of a four part series in which each film pairs one of the thermodynamic laws with a single street address. The second law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy, states order tends toward disorder. This film is a meditation on the infrastructure of aging, captured at a time when the filmmaker's grandmother was deciding whether to leave her home for a nursing facility. In this excerpt, she turns the tables on suppositions that accompany the process of getting old.

    Anecdotally, Andy Warhol once asked the Velvet Underground that the record bearing his name be inscribed with a purposeful skip during the song “I’ll be Your Mirror.” Listeners, faced with the endless repetition of that particular lyric, would be forced to rouse themselves and manually drive the needle onward. The group declined this request.
    I’m in Pittsburgh and It’s Raining honors the concept: both the act and the idea of being caught in a reflexive moment. This video is an experimental portrait of a lighting stand-in/body double whose work and corporal self appears in films even if her name does not. Through a purposeful masking of the (sometimes subtle) differentiations between performance and acting, famous Hollywood actress and her double, character, actual person, audience expectation, and cinema magic this video offers a look behind the silver screen.

    First Prize at Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival.
