Dream-Seconds

A moving-image collage. "Dream-Seconds" is inspired by Joseph Cornell's "Rose Hobart" (1936). The source material was two random VHS tapes [Twister (1996) / Reader's Digest: Nature's Symphony (1991)] found in a local thrift store, manually manipulated in post production. "The piece, beautiful and haunting", by the nature of its process, asks us to consider what we keep, discard, and re-purpose as aesthetic material," writes Warren Cockerham.
