Seven years of photographs cut down to 60 images.
Four years of sound files cut to 56 clips laid down over 6 tracks.
A week of Final Cut madness. (thank you the ever patient Sandra Roa editor extraordinaire)
The result: Homeland 4:03 minutes. Digital Video.
Premieres September 5, 2011
The exhibition “For the Record: Searching for Objectivity in Global Conflict” opens August 22 – October 22 at the Montserrat College of Art Gallery in Beverly, Massachusetts. I’ll be exhibiting 3 photographs from Homeland and the Purple Hearts video. It’s a thrill to share space with the great Gerhard Richter and many others including Fiona Banner, Matthew Ernst, Harun Farocki, Benjamin Lowy, Steve Mumford, James O’Neill, Sophie Ristelhueber, and Rob Roy. Thank you Leonie Bradbury, director of the gallery, and her dedicated staff.
