yer here, its here

This is my final version of "You Are Here."
Created entirely without a camera by scratching emulsion off 16mm film,
then drawing on the frames.
version 1
raw footage
Where we are is who we are; then who are we as our location changes? This film is centered on the red dot commonly found on public maps, "You Are Here." The dot undulates nervously, constantly morphing. It does not mark a location at all, but rather describes the uncertain nature of place and our belonging to it. The dot is forgotten as the film turns into a vertical landscape, flowing down the frame. This horizon line is also constantly changing, then transforming into abstract colors and form.
The sound featured is a recording of Shelly Blake-Plock's live performance
"From Here to There is Nothing if Not Difficult."
Two turntables and a microphone, a distortion pedal, and a lot of tin foil.
