Still from "Dreaming New Zealand" by Diane Spodarek and Jay Yager. Shot at Belle River, Ontario, Canada.
This is the last video art work Jay and I collaborated with, one of many we shot at Belle River, a place I grew up from the age of three. Although the family moved to Detroit, we continued to spend three to four months in Canada. It is there, that memories have a base, a foundation in stability, something I do not experience in anything else.
The experience of archiving the analog video work to digital was wonderful, with people at the New Museum walking about, watching, some stopping to ask questions, like the artist visiting from China who commented that as a filmmaker, his resources were very limited.
