XU - 4 generations
VHS to DV to Super 8mm to DV

XU Extract is an extraction and embellishment of a favorite childhood film created as an exorcism of nostalgia. I extracted my favorite visual seconds and wrung them out, so to speak, by creating 4 generations of the excerpts going from tv screen to digital video to computer screen to Super 8 and back to digital video. I see this as a piece that can continuously be updated with multiple versions. I can create as many generations as long as moving image formats are alive, barely staying alive and/or new ones are born. Each new generation has a small part of the first generation.
