Kerry Tribe — H.M.

Kerry Tribe’s H.M. is a single 16mm film that plays on two adjacent synchronized projectors with a twenty-second delay, so the viewer sees simultaneous side-by-side projections of two different parts of the same film. The structure of the installation and the nature of the material produce a sensation of mnemonic dissonance much like that experienced by Patient H.M. The loop weaves together reenacted, documentary, found, and animated elements, and lies somewhere between an experimental documentary and an independent narrative film.
