Rhizome

Sale Format(s): DVD

A continuation of Dana Plays' Salvage Paradigm series compounding detritus of history and
memory derived from found-footage salvaged from 1,600 educational films, thrown into a
dumpster by Syracuse University after its downsizing effort closed the S.U. Educational Film
Library. Plays optically re-photographs archival footage segments that she extracts with a focus
on war documentation, science experiments, motion picture and optical inventions and other
subjects throughout the history of the twentieth century as a mash of the cultural remains of past
times, since the advent of the motion picture technology.
