BEQUEST is a video collage that examines the territory between simulated memory and contemporary reality. The work is based on an inherited archive of photographs documenting New York during the depression years of 1920-30’s. My intervention (breaking down the inherited prints and inserting them into my own contemporary photographs) re-interprets the formalistic elements of my grandfather’s photographs, fabricating hybrid connections that transform into an imaginary landscape, a cityscape that is simultaneously material and surreal.
