On Alzheimer’s, RT: 07:56, 16mm b&w film transferred to video, silent (2006)

On Alzheimer’s is an experimental animation piece that explores my grandmother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease. The film was created by animating photographic stills taken in my grandmother’s apartment in Corsica, in combination with old family photographs, her physical objects (pearls and gloves), my diary text, and various other collected imagery (brain diagrams, etc.). The film is sustained by two melodies—text and imagery—that repeat themselves, unfolding in alternate rhythms to emulate the mental obfuscation and confusion of Alzheimer’s.
