MiniDV, color, sound, 8 minutes.
With Dylan Bolles, Nathan Lynch, and Michael Barth Meyers.
Gutterball was made at the request of San Francisco Bay Area artists Dylan Bolles, Nathan Lynch, and Michael Barth Meyers. It was shot one afternoon soon after its 28 April 2002 performances at a Headlands Center for the Arts Open House, using available light and an unfamiliar camera.
The piece was nearly lost, the original footage and a looped final edit existing only on degraded-by-time MiniDV tapes. Reclaiming it was my primary goal when I applied to the Bay Area Video Coalition's Preservation Access Program in 2018. I'm grateful to BAVC for admitting me into the program, and to the National Endowment for the Arts & The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their support of this important program, which has preserved work in countless formats from individuals and organizations across the United States.
