The Imprint (2015, 4 minutes, B&W, 16mm)
· IMDb ·
Through the world of construction, humans leave a mark on the physical environment, disrupting something that lies beneath.
Stumbling across Boston's construction in the Fenway neighborhood in late 2015, I felt a strong need to document it in some way. The length of this construction project combined with its central, dominating presence in the area made me feel that this constant digging and repaving around the Riverway would yield a wide array of consequences. Whether they were going to be good for the area was yet to be seen, but we were making an imprint nonetheless. Ultimately, I chose to document the construction on a print stock and Tri-X 16mm film and hand process it myself with exhausted developing chemicals, leaving an uncertain imprint of my own on the film.
