2 thoughts on “Edie Sequence: "Copenhagen, Nova Scotia"

  1. When my great aunt Edie passed away in Spring 2004, my father and I travelled from Phoenix to Bucks County, PA. to clean out her apartment. In her closet I found shoe boxes of slides from her many trips around the world & scenes in NYC where she'd lived for 50 years. These “Edie Sequences” are photos of her photos, shot by me as viewed through her AGFASCOP 20 Slide Viewer. The images here are blurrier than the originals, partly because of my crude documentaion, but seem appropriate in the sense that these images are coming to us through time, through the distance of memory. The black frames around the images seem true, as if viewing not only a movie screen's image, but also the space around the screen. Her eye for both the common gesture and the beautiful, the grand landscape and the minute details of her subject are, to me, as hypnotizing as any moving image. -akp

  2. andy the act of re-collecting these images is quite the action/example of benjamin’s ideas about dialectical images…i must send you a short letter i’m working on about this (as well as some other art-historical non-sense)…anyhow it seems as though these ideas of memory…technologies of memory…and the ways these collections can jarr open perceptive imginings and even at times communicate through time/space the idiosyncratic sublime urtransmissions of kulchur…are, well, very important…
