Untitled (Dec. 29, 1993)

1993, color, sound

Untitled haphazardly records two lessons: one a father’s instruction to son on the proper handling of a firearm, the other a son’s instruction to father on how to use home-video equipment. The firearm instruction is recorded with the lens-cap accidentally left on, replacing the image with a cryptic bulls-eye symbol of pulsing shadow and light, shifting with the camera’s auto-focus.
