Created from video clips from the Prelinger Archive intercut with my response to the originating films, the search terms encompassed ‘learning’ ‘swimming’ ‘baseball’ and ‘marine’. In examining the distinction as to what is archival or not, I was exploring the differing archival status that the clips inhabit. There was an intentional irony in the actions I was copying, parodying the moving bodies from the originating clips a making strange to underscore and highlight the questions I have about the precariousness of engaging archival histories in making work, my memories and the associations I made across differing moving image archives.
