i’ve been thinking about doing a video for “a guide to misinterpreting the past” awhile. the piece, for me, is really about how we remember the past and how those memories are always mutating based on our experiences since that moment. i did a draft using some old super 8 footage i had from my cousin of our families; and just spliced together the pieces that weren’t really about anything – just images of houses, roadsides, blurs, etc. but i realized that those were still specifically about a period in time and i wanted the video to be about the viewer’s experience – not mine. so i came up with the idea of using the liner notes for the CD and sequence them in time to the music with no images, just text. this way the images are about the viewer’s own imagery and memories. at least that is what i attempted to do with it.
anyway, as with anything, you can be the judge if that is what i accomplished.
