RUINS

Single Channel Video, 1 Min 7 Sec

A frame of my 8mm family film, by chance, catches in the projector and begins to burn as it is being played. This fragment of time is digitally manipulated to loop back and forth, and the sound of the projector is slowed down to an echoing repetition. The resulting short loop recalls an otherworldly heartbeat and the deteriorating aesthetics of memory.
