"Copy the Past" - remixed memories
HDV video / 22 min / 16 mm goes digital / 1993-2015
Video for art show "In Sane" (Chicago, 2015), based on original 16-mm film “In the Motherland of Corn”, described trip around US in 1993-1994. The film was shown once in the festival “Funeral of Cinema” (St. Petersburg,1999). Later the material was transferred from 16-mm to VHS, and some poetic captions and third party footage were added. The version offered here and titled “Copy the Past,” rethinks anew the digitized material in the context of the project IN SANE, focusing on a demonstration of the polyphonic variability of memories as a process, and on defects-effects of memories as carriers of a cultural “I”. Soundtrack by dimaze (cc).
