IMITATIONS OF LIFE

by Mike HOOLBOOM
2003 / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 75' 00

A video in ten parts : In the Future (3:00), Jack (15:00), Last Thoughts (7:00), Portrait (4:00), Secret
(2:00), In My Car (5:00), The Game (5:30), Scaling (5:00), Imitation of Life (21:00), Rain (3.30).

This ten-part video strains childhood through a history of reproduction, culling pictures from the Lumiéres to the present day in order to find the future in our past. Here are children of pictures, as pictures, the ones who will walk on our graves, granted a legacy of framing and image-making that have helped shape their lives, and their ability to grieve those no longer around to share them.
