“Accumulated Body” E. Aaron Ross


“Accumulated Body is a collection of videos from my father’s childhood growing up in Texas, narrated by my father. Originally shot on film during the idealized golden age of America, the film has since been converted to VHS with the originals discarded. This footage is combined with documentary video of the destruction of my personal documents from birth to my 25th birthday, for the purpose of turning the recycled paper into a sculpture for burning. Accumulated Body is about cyclical parallels, losing a sense of the present, and the inevitable degradation of history by the stream time.” -E.AR
