WEEK SEVEN: The Archive: H'wood/TV

The artist Joseph Cornell  (1903-1972) started us out  with his unique and unimaginably influential collage portrait film from 1936 Rose Hobart, made from the 1931 jungle drama East of Borneo. Further information on Cornell's cinema and boxes can be found here in Catherine Cormans essay on Surrealist Astronomy
and let us not forget your *required reading *

Other works made by raiding the collective celluloid (and electron) memory banks screened
Michael Robinson's  Light is Waiting 2007

We probably should have watched Dara Birnbaum's Technology Transfomation/Wonder Woman (1978) 
for a second time too!
