About

Teen Dream takes up the narrative and material themes of crystalline structures, which evoke life but are not themselves alive. These structural arrangements mutate in the carbon cycle, fuse human flesh to steel, and translate the chaotic flux which we call memory into the emulsive surface of the film. There are shrines to dead cats, old flames, teenage crushes, veins of American rust. The extreme, high-frequency concentrations of the blue light burn at the tip of the welding torches like vigils for a lost adolescent fury. They build layers upon layers, burying the narrative sparks of dreams beneath the solid ground of the celluloid. Footage shot and reshot frame by frame, hand-processed, crunched, and crystallized.
