Unconformity (2010)
An unconformity is a geologic feature in which one archaic surface has been eroded and is then covered by sediment. This video uses digital cuts and deformations in the visual surface of several performances to create a metaphorical topography for personal and cultural histories made discontinuous. Performances were shot at close to the location where Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley, at the construction site of a new museum of natural history. Other performances were shot at the childhood homes of the performers.
