About

A film about forgetting and remembering, about past presences and the traces they leave. In making this piece, I literally manipulated and distorted the film plane through experimentation in doing my own contact printing of personal home movie images. The point of contact is continuously shifted so that the film plane appears warped and the images fluctuate, creating a distorted space of fleeting apparitions, like resurfacing memories.
The footage was hand-processed and solarized as well as colored by hand through toning before a final print was made at the lab.
"... a very short film that meshes the beautifully overlapping style of Bruce Baillie with rhythm and sound to create a meditation in blue." – Stephen Brody, artsMEDIA, March 15-April 15, 2000
