Paper on Morrison Street

experimentalfilm, portland

Format: 16mm film transferred to digital video
Duration: 1 minute
Year: 2011

For many years I had a spacious studio on Morrison Street between SE 2nd Ave and SE 3rd Ave, a dark area under the Morrison Bridge overpass. This is a “paper transfer” film, made by soaking paper and trash I found on the street near my studio, lifting it with scotch tape, and transferring the fibers and ink to clear film leader.
