Paper on Morrison Street

16mm film transferred to digital video, 2011

1 minute

Portland's Southeast Morrison Street between SE 2nd Ave and SE 3rd Ave is a dark area under the Morrison Bridge overpass. My studio is located in a building here. There is lots of garbage in the street and a loud freight train chugs along nearby regularly day and night. This film was made by soaking some of the already soaked paper I found out on the street near my studio, lifting it with scotch tape, and transferring the fibers and ink to clear film leader.
