Production Notes


Photographic Paper
Splicing Tape
3” X 75’

During the late 1970s and early 1980's I made a series of photographic and sculptural works that explored ways of representing a range of essential cinematic "ideas," outside of conventional cinematic grammar. I made paper films -- some of them found objects re-imagined -- photographic collages, assemblages of cardboard and other materials, and a wide range of other conceptual works, all in search of alternative ways of expressing my love of cinema without necessarily making (actual) films.

WORKPRINT is a 75 foot-long photographic scroll, “spliced” together (with actual splicing tape), from different fragments of 35mm film imagery, industrially printed as sequential frames (but “uncut”) on 3” X 5” rolls of photographic paper.
