“Dean sunsets, all of them (1952-2006)” Laura Mackin


A distant relative gave me a collection of home movies, shot from 1946–2006 by a man named Dean. By persistently recording 60 years of his everyday experiences, Dean captured his own life cycle. From 8mm film to DV, Dean filmed 24 sunsets. Displayed simultaneously—tiled, like a surveillance monitor—at normal speed, 24 tiles of sunset footage begin playing. As the footage runs out, the screen flickers to black, tile by tile. – LM
