Analog iridescence. Here, I use the Tape and Transport Mechanism of a film or video processing device to not only capture but briefly suggest the expressive, aesthetic base of the medium. PAUSE, FFWD, RWD, for me, become indicia of audio-visual expressivity. Here, the artifacts of the medium as well as its unique visual signature, lineage and contribution to mechanized image production, are recaptured and recontextualized through my own 8mm video distillations and the luxury of obsolescence. Tools: Sony Handycam. Sentimentality.
