About 5 years ago I started making works that incorporated found home movie footage in a liminal way. As the movies were presented in extremely low resolution, none of the details of the images were visible to the viewers giving them a somewhat “universal” home-movie feel. Glimpse, which also uses found home movies, presents the films obscured / washed out by the light of a slide projector such that only the beginning of each camera shot is visible. This structure makes Glimpse liminal in a different perceptual dimension compared to my other home movie based works. One needs to use short term memory and edge recognition to comprehend the moving imagery of Glimpse.
