Genre: Narrative, Experimental

Keywords: Architecture, diary_ journal

Dedicated to William Balough. With "Bucky Peckerhead" Balough (Age 70), Ice Box, Zunda, and G.Y.: "A super-8 work diary which records various episodes as we renovate and reclaim bricks from the former Charles Parker building in Yalesville, Connecticut. The problem of cleaning the bricks, one by one, was solved by Bucky's orderly method, which he devised while working for the WPA in the 1930's. 'Let the tool do the work' was his advice to us, and since he owned more tools than anyone I've met, the job was simplified. Every so often, I would set up the camera, turn it on, and go back to work. The result is this narrative work, edited in-camera. Bucky died in 1980, and at least he was able to see the film (he laughed), so I dedicate this to him, one of the great originals I have had the pleasure of knowing." - G.Y.
