(1999) videotape, color, sound, 10 mins., by Scott Stark
in.side.out is a very personal piece. On the surface it's about the changes taking place, over a two-year period, in an empty lot and a decrepit old building next to my house. Deeper down it's about the walls and windows between my interior and exterior selves, and how the fragile constructs of identity are etched, eroded, re-shaped and transformed by outside forces.

"Setting in motion the fixity and confinement of home against the transformation and liberation of an adjacent tract, Stark rhymes gesture across time and space." -- New York Video Festival

"An acutely edited structural film." Amy Taubin, Village Voice
