:: "I dream of Your Past" - Super 8mm Archive Moving Image :: WORK IN PROGRESS

As a response to the COVID 19 Lockdown, I finally engaged with the multiple reels of super 8mm film that I have had sitting in boxes in cold storage for many years.

These home-movie reels were all purchased from E-bay / Junk shops and Thrift Shops over the past 10 years. I am fascinated by the notion that these moments were captured as cherished memories; then later discarded.

Thus has begun a process of me teaching myself to cut up the memories of others and learn how to glue them back together to

THIS IS A SHORT VIDEO DOCUMENTING MY CREATIVE PROCESS LEARNING HOW TO PHYSICALLY CUT AND EDIT THESE OLD REELS OF SUPER 8MM FILM TOGETHER. THE PROJECT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS IN MY STUDIO.
