Museum of African American History
Detroit, Michigan US 04/1997
Created for Roy Brooks and the Aboriginal Ensemble of New York for the Museum's grand opening.
From my 16mm educational film collection I made montages related to African American topics. I also used unrelated footage with the African American footage in an implied way. This was possible because I used three 16mm film projectors that ran the individual montages side by side at the same time. At times I would move the focus knob in and out of focus in timing with the music (like a VJ effect).
Note: More details to come, need to go through my never ending archives (sigh)...
Tools & Equipment: Three 16mm film projectors, 16mm splicer, etc.
