SPOOL
Corpus of videos, home-movie video archives
2007 - on going

SPOOL is a project consisting in the recovery of home-movies analog video archives. Each archive is analyzed in its formal qualities and re-structured into a video, called “tape”. Every “tape” is numbered in sequential order and maintains its own autonomy. In its entirety, SPOOL reflects on the ways of selfrepresentation at the turning point between exclusive film formats and the video as the first medium that allowed a wide public to realize and share amateur audiovisual productions. Up to now, SPOOL includes 7 “tapes” for an overall length of two hours ca.

Tape 01 . Lia (2007)
Tape 02 . Roger (2007)
Tape 03 . Rita (2008)
Tape 04 . Giulio (2010)
Tape 05 . Elena (2011)
Tape 06 . Martina (2011)
Tape 07 . Cecilia (2012)
