EM: Martha Davis' film PATH is about a woman who charts a course and then walks around neighbourhoods and records what she sees. I thought is was almost a scientific exercise in "stop and smell the roses".
KR: I found it so engrossing to watch, the footage was so incredible. I think it was made in 1987, so I would have been 2 years old. I felt very nostalgic watching it. It felt like half-memories I have, or reminded me of looking at family photos. There’s this part when they’re walking past a construction site, or alleyway where people are working, and there’s this old fence, and there’s this a guy fixing a chimney and he waves. It was so incredible to watch.
EM: This films feels like a time capsule. I’m noticing a theme of memory through your collection. Do you think that when people watch your films in twenty or thirty years, they will have that same nostalgic reaction?
Kaz: Yes, for sure. I want my films to be a bit disarming and to give you the realization that the aesthetic of the film is not entirely mine, that we are in lived spaces with actual people. My work involves a lot of close-ups, it is always a bit clumsy, a bit too close and flawed.
