Hold (1996)

The video Hold considers the nature of memory, exploring the tension between our desire to hold onto experiences against the inevitability of the passing of time. Hold (1996) exploits the fact that film is made up of separate frames; the majority of the film features a new person on every frame, or every eighteenth of a second. Although occasionally two or three people are held longer, using consecutive frames to jump back and forth between them, the sound and the mechanism of the film are relentless, no resolution is reached, we continue to move forward.
