some stills from the video installation: striations, which will be part of my show opening on thursday at susanne veilmetter la projects. it's the first time i have worked with a 16mm camera and the first time the bulk of the film is recognizable images. the film was inspired by a quote by henry moore that i found in my grandmother's sculpture studio - along with some of her unfinished stones. the pieces is silent, consisting of two projections of different lengths, placed side by side so that the "stereo" relationship is constantly shifting. there is also some hand drawn elements translating the moore quote into drawing actions for specified numbers of frames... the film gushingly gleans inspiration from dennis oppenheim's early films, gary beydler's hand held day, and an early film by jess that suggested a victorian magic lantern show. i'll eventually post a moving document...
