RETURN to E.Jay's Gardens

The original intention seems different ,
seems changed.
... a meditation on animal husbandry...
The film (produced in 1998) is derived from documentary footage I recorded of a 24 hour installation performance. It reconstructs from my viewpoint what it was like to participate as a partner in this event and evokes a sense of the endurance and physical dependence that evolved between the the two of us over the long night.

Original footage was shot in super 8 and blown up to 16mm on an optical printer.

performers: Angelika Festa, E.Jay Sims, live bunny
performance: "Heloise's Bird" with Angelika Festa at Franklin Furnace, NYC, 1985.
