The Dad Tapes / The Mom Photographs
This project is an installation that pairs home-video footage recorded by my father with family photographs simultaneously taken by my mother. What will be shown, and which is of central interest, is that there were countless moments in the past 30 years that they both agreed were important to document.
Setting up circumstances for capturing moments has been the focus of my previous photo work. With The Dad Tapes/The Mom Photographs, I bring together a moving picture and a static image of the same event, which animates that moment in a unique, unforeseen way. Separately, the video might seem tedious and the photographs contrived, but when paired, they speak of a basic shared interestas well as an obsessive need to mediate family life.
