jərˈmān took a bit of a break over the summer, but we're kicking off the fall with a great video piece. If you're unfamiliar with jərˈmān, it's the new media series here at Cutbank. For more information and a link to our back catalog, get on over here. For September, we've got a video by Jonathan Jonson - "One Quick Memory". Find a statement by the artist below.
I am interested in new meanings and formal relationships that come to the surface when sound and image from various sources are re-contextualized. I consider Internet, personal, found and archival images as latent records that reveal the comedy, geography and drama of our social lives.
One Quick Memory montages found images and sound to create a subjective recollection of a road trip nightmare in the tradition of Freudian inspired “dream movies”.
