Notes from the Farm documents my response to an artists’ residency at the Independent Imaging Retreat (aka the “Film Farm”) in rural Ontario. Having grown up in rural Missouri, but having since lived exclusively in large urban areas, I found the Film Farm both familiar and strange. I shot and hand-processed “live action” scenes on the farm, using organic materials (trees, flowers, plants) as “mattes” for my post-residency work in the optical printer, where I combined these mattes and scenes with handmade “botanicollage” film that I created from plants gathered at the farm. The soundtrack, weaving ambient rural sounds with a jazz tune composed and performed by New York trumpeter Tatum Greenblatt and his band, anchors the film and underscores its disparate urban/rural impulses.
