What We Loved and Forgot: Video
2:06 min., HD video
What We Loved and Forgot is a single channel video, site-specific video installation, and a series of photographs.
A meditation on memory and loss, the video begins with a man seated on an easy chair in a room surrounded by discarded newspapers. The man rises from the chair, ascends into a white space and then makes his way through a field where workers are assembling giant yellow day lilies until he ultimately steps into a new room above a kitchen where a woman is making a real-life meal that will feed the cast and crew. The soundtrack was written and performed by Megan and Murray McMillan.
