Farther Further, sound, 3 min, 2007-9 (excerpt)
Posterization is a graphic arts technique lent here to moving images by way of double passing contact prints of two alternative densities. Because these passes are offset by a few frames the shadows, midtones and highlights drift in and out sync with their image recordings. A similar treatment of the optical soundtrack slips a lecture about line into a familiarly foreign space.
Procesing home movies combines the need to make sense of the past with the hope that the present won’t need as much making sense of. Sometimes a line is a thing we cross. Sometimes lines are the things that we cross.
