In SOME MISTAKES I HAVE MADE, I re-imagine almost 50 years of super-8mm, 16mm, and half-inch video outtakes, experiments, accidents, processing errors and unplanned occurrences calling attention to the constructed nature of representation. Do these recordings of past failures reveal any new meanings? View a video of this book here: http://www.jclvision.com/artist-books.html

The film was inspired and preceded by my artist book of the same title made in 2018 in which I re-purposed the residue of a tool that was used to create documents for most of the 20th century: the typewriter. I was fascinated with the innovation of correction tape that magically lifted typed errors off the page and saved many reels of tape from those times before I used a computer. How often do we get to see our mistakes in life graphically represented?
