Melts Into Air (2000) Super 8, color, 3 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists, Biography & Autobiography, Environment & Nature, Landscape & Architecture

N.B. Project at 18 fps. ALL THAT'S SOLID (and) MELTS INTO AIR are each separate films shot at an exhibition of the urban landscape artist Tyree Suyton in Cambridge at Harvard. I was struck by the redemptive critical and visionary character of his work which struck me as similar to G. M. Hopkins or Clarence Smith. Coincidentally as I was shooting these films I went to screenings of Charles Burnett and asked him what film he would like to make but couldn't get the money for. He replied a feature narrative about Tyree Suyton. So I put together 4 of the films from Spring 2000 into a 4 film work called 4 FOR CHARLES BURNETT. All That's Solid Melts Into Air. They are All That's Solid Light Lick Toscannini's European Sidewalk Cafe Melts into Air
