Re: The Question About Space, Domestic and Otherwise.

Dear Ben,

Here's a couple of suggestions:

Margaret Tait, Place of Work (31m, 1976, 16mm)
You can read more about it here:

Jean-Claude Rousseau, Jeune femme a sa fenetre lisant une lettre (45m, 1983-84, S8/DigiBeta)
More about it (in French) here:

NB Both of these deal with the superimposition/interpenetration of the artist's workspace and her/his home, which may make them a sub-theme within your original thene.

Good luck with your search:)

  Dearest Frameworkers,

  Hello again. While I'm at it, I was wondering if I could pick your
  collective brain about films/videos that deal with the representation
  and alteration of domestic space (physical, emotional, etc). I'm
  putting together a program of films for a gallery screening in the
  City of Broad Shoulders, and while I've got a program picked out
  already, I was curious as to what else might be circling the A/V
  atmosphere. To give you a better sense of what I'm asking, here's
  the constellation of films that I've gathered thus far:

  Wait by Ernie Gehr (7:00, 16mm, 1968)
  Table by Ernie Gehr (16:00, 16mm, 1976)
  House by Ben Rivers (6:00, 16mm, 2007)
  Old Dark House by Ben Rivers (4:00, 16mm, 2007)
  Dani Houses by Karl Heider (16:00, 16mm, 1963)
  Footnotes to a House of Love by Laida Lertxundi (13:00, 16mm, 2007)
  Babobilicons by Daina Krumins (16:00, 16mm, 1982)
  The Fourth Watch by Janie Geiser (10:00, 16mm, 2000)
  Red Swing by Leighton Pierce (8:00, 16mm, 1986)
  Chinese Firedrill by Will Hindle (25:00, 16mm, 1968)

  I'd be especially excited to hear the titles of whatever ethnographic
  films might be on the tips of your tongues...

  Thanks In Advance,

  Ben Russell
