Hollis Frampton, Works & Days

Hollis Frampton

Works and Days (1969) 16mm, black and white, silent, 12 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Found Footage

N.B. All proceeds from the rental of this film will go to support
publication of the film-makers' coop catalogue. I bought this film in
a Canal Street junk shop for $1.00 and found myself in complete
agreement with it. The ostensible pretext is the humane and practical
discipline of making a vegetable garden (hence the title, borrowed
from Hesiod). The gardeners are masters of their art, so that their
work blossoms into overarching metaphor. I have attached my logo to
the film, not to claim it as a ready-made, but in the spirit of
Chinese connoisseurs who affixed their vermilion seals to paintings
as a mark of admiration.

Rental: $30.00
