Are You Still Recording?, Rachel Wright

Art Practices MFA Theses

Are You Still Recording? Is an experimental video installation that re-contextualizes an archive of home movies, including 16mm film, 8mm film, Super 8, video and sound recordings, as well as voicemail messages from my father and other natural and instrumental sounds.

Material, space, and technology become instruments for composition manifesting as silent experimental cinema (created and controlled sonically). My work seeks to illuminate our conscious scope through the succession of frames.
