Buffalo Silent Films (1983) 16mm, black and white, 20 min

Genre: Experimental

Concerned with bourgeois life, camera angle, bleakness, and "fissuring" of highly restrained or contained material. Silent films have always provided a degree of difficulty for me; they develop narrative as hysteria. In this instance, the work is buried in depression and a highly exact cinematography; the apparatus itself partakes of obsessive neurosis. Subjects include the bourgeois home, walking on a mountain, snow, and language (reading).
