About

I cut several Super-8 films that I had previously made into one or two foot strips. I then altered them through means of handcraft: I sewed bits of fabric onto them, and painted them, and cut some of them in half vertically in order to sew mis-matched halves together. The performance consisted of a live video of my hands feeding strips of Super-8 film into a film projector- this video image was shown to the left of the projected film strips. The soundtrack was simply the sound of the film projector's motor. The video provides documentation of the performance, and shows what the audience saw. During the duration of the performance, I was positioned on the floor, sitting within the crowd.
