Mirage 2

1976-2000, 30 min, b&w, sound

Mirage 2, which Jonas edited at EAI in 2000 for simultaneous projection with her 1976 film Mirage, is a montage composed of video dating from the era of the original film and performance. A kaleidoscopic and hypnotic piece, it revisits footage recorded in the 1970s: fragments of off-air television news and commercials, Jonas' chalk-on-blackboard drawings, landscape views in Sardinia, and never-seen documentation of the artist and Pat Steir improvising on the streets of lower Manhattan.
