Here Before

Here before is a two screen video installation that juxtaposes both medium format film work with video.  Each location has been visited twice, with a significant time gap in between.  During the first visit the location was filmed using a fixed camera position. The returned visit was then photographed with a film camera. The video was edited into a sequence and the medium format film was melted in small increments revealing a steady flow of deterioration. The final film has no audio and invites the viewer to make connections between the two films.
