"Crossing" is a short video exploring the evolution of technology and the fluid nature of time and space. Commissioned and presented by 2012 Zero1 Biennial with support from the James Irvine Foundation for the Urban Screen, I've combined vintage home movies from 1939 with site-specific footage in San Jose, CA, specifically two figures crossing time and space. Music by the Evie Ladin Band.
This new video is an extension of a work-in-progress, “Film at 11,” a multi-platform project combining vintage home movies with digital media today to explore relationships between past/present and the perception of time/memory. For a brief period (1939-1942) the diacetate Kodachrome film produced lush color that appears today perfectly preserved, as opposed to triacetate film (post 1942) that does not hold up nearly as well. I’ve been mining 16mm films from that picture-perfect era to use in new work that explores time and technology. This series involves staged interventions that combine contemporary elements with old films and film stills to create digital prints and short animations.
