2015, 35mm film, color/sound, 9 mins.
A follow-up to my 2012 film Traces, Traces/Legacy uses a device called a film recorder to print a series of digital still images onto 35mm film. Discarded Christmas trees, colorfully arranged flea market finds, a museum of animal kills, microscopic views of kitchenware, and other overlooked cultural artifacts are interwoven with flickering journeys through mysterious, shadowy realms.
As with Traces, the 35mm projector can only show a portion of the image at a time, so the viewer sees alterations between the top and bottom half of each frame. The images also overlap onto the optical sound area of the film, generating their own unique sounds.
