Author description:
I produced the piece «Onko» in 1997. I cut super 8 film loops into measured lengths. I projected these, randomly trapping frames in the gate on each cycle. The startled expression of the passenger and the incremental increase of degradation hint at the subsidence of memories over time. What we see and project clearly in our mind today, will degrade and collapse. Memory, like film, degrading with each review, accumilating detritus, emotional dust and scratches, confusing and blurring the credibility of personal experience.
