Remote Viewing
Single Channel Video 
Created initially from video segments drawn from the Prelinger Archive, the work is intercut with the artist response to the originating films framed through the search terms encompasing ‘learning’ ‘swimming’ ‘baseball’ and ‘marine’.

In meditating on the film’s archival qualities, there is an irony in the actions of copying and parodying the moving bodies from the originating clips, a making strange through forced or earnest relations to the archival finds.  It begs the question of the precariousness of engaging archival histories, and the possible associations ultimately anchored in the subjective gaze of both artiat and viewer.
