Todos os Preciosos JPEGS Dela (Em Amarelo)
ALL HER PRECIOUS JPEGS (ON YELLOW)
This film is from a body of work that gives a textual and archival response to and
documentation of perpetual discrepancies - between living and deceased, public and
private, physical and virtual - found in moments of contemporary mourning. Shot on Super 8mm film, the work’s own ontology speaks to the material vulnerabilities, susceptibilities, affective properties of the physical archive, particularly in juxtaposition to contemporary modalities of digital memory. This body of filmic work is seen to perpetuate, in vain, a synoptic visual language of social media, while challenging the immediacy and omnipresence of written language created for and within a digital social space by allowing it to be made readable only through its recording onto Super 8mm film.
