Back East

Above is a three minute sequence compiled from a 90 minute hyperlapse traveling from my parents' grave in Huntington Beach, California to each of their parents' graves in Maritime Canada, revisiting places along they way they had visited during their separate migrations to California in the 1960's. 2011.


One of several installation videos done in collaboration with Clare Whistler, as part of her Gift series of art events, each organized around a traditional gift given to a newborn. Coin took place in an old coast guard cottage on the south coast of England in East Sussex in 2014.

My first collaboration with Clare was on an earlier Gift event, Coal, in 2007, in a barn near the site of the Battle of Hastings.
