double projection stills, MiniDV, color, sound, 60:02 min, 2021
This video features two MiniDV tapes recorded with a 2002 Canon ZR45 camcorder. I performed all the editing in-camera during the course of my daily life using a method I call "Swiss-Cheesing"— randomly scanning back and forth on a tape, dropping new video through previous footage. This is a diary film with a catch: recording a new entry destroys a segment of equal length. The juxtapositions between the two tapes occur by chance.
Free of the limits of time and space, I put together any given point in the universe, no matter where I’ve recorded them
