Unpacking My Library
The Early Museum
Gallery installation of 60 color slide photographs and found object displays.
Exhibit of several small installations with embedded miniature video screens and slide projections. The show closed each night with a live performance of Blaxton’s Point, a 35mm slideshow, and Hinterland, a 16mm film/35mm slide double projection piece accompanied by Beaux Mingus on the singing saw.
A dream-like hopscotch through our historical, geographical, and cultural memory: Los Angeles as a place of wilderness up-ended by human settlement, and subsequently, a place of human settlement up-ended by nature time and again. “This storm is what we call progress.”
Originally presented as 16mm film loop with 35mm slides and digital audio track; the order, timing, and orientation of the piece changes with each screening. This is the first iteration, presented at Echo Park Film Center’s “A Day in the Sun” screening, supported by the Mike Kelley Foundation.
