Unchanged When Exhumed
In iParade#2: Unchanged When Exhumed, LoVid explores relationships between human memory and physical places, as well as displaced memories and technology. This work is inspired by the historic relocations of Hamilton Grange. Additional inspiration comes from an archive of student films from the 1940s and 1950s. These films were produced as part of the Film Institute at NY City College under the direction of the artist and filmmaker Hans Richter.
The piece takes place in Hamilton Heights, a neighborhood in West Harlem, New York, NY.
Directed, written, filmed, edited, and produced by LoVid
Director of technicalities: Sean M. Montgomery
Soundtrack by Maria Chavez
Theme song by Dan Friel
