Lost, Present Tense

(2017, 16mm to HD, looping)

Somewhere between a triptych and rebus, this piece displays images of a field on fire, a body enveloped in a cloud of smoke, and walls expanding and collapsing. All are found film images that have been rephotographed and manipulated on an optical printer and contact printer. The three independently looping channels provide the viewer an imagined landscape of the present moment to move through.
