Trailer Trash and Hidden in Plain Sight by Mark Street
5 minutes 2009 video
A skewed take on film detritus: 35mm movie trailers rescued from the
trash and affected by hand and digitally, holding up a funhouse mirror
to the industry of expectations
Hidden in Plain Sight *
60 minutes 2008 original music composed by Jane Scarpatoni and Guy Yarden
_Hidden in Plain Sight_ is inspired by the tradition of cinematic city
symphonies and is made up of footage shot in four cities: Santiago de
Chile, Hanoi Vietnam, Dakar Senegal and Marseille France. Vignettes from
each place are juxtaposed so that the viewer is pulled from place to
place, picking up the pieces, making connections only to have them
disappear just as quickly. Historical details (about Salvador Allende
and Ho Chi Minh, among others), quotes from writing (by Miriama Ba and
Charles Baudelaire and others), laconic captions, scored music, and
expressionistic sound design offer contrasting contexts in which to view
these images. _Hidden in Plain Sight_ offers a dynamic way of viewing
street life in these locales, encouraging us to think about how we
apprehend a place visually and conceptually.
