Experimentations with unfinished films
From 2006 to 2011, I compiled my late artist-father’s archives, in particular, his film archives from the 1960s of which one 16mm film, R69, remained unfinished at the time of his death in 2003. This practical research yielded experimentation in interactive database film (entitled Archiving R69 created in Korsakow software) to animate multimedia archives in creative ways. And in this process, the attraction of other unfinished films, including Cha's White Dust from Mongolia, was enough to have me pilgrimage to find her collected documents, artworks and media at the Berkeley Art Museum. What I discovered was a remarkably rich, complex and evocative material archive established with a start-up donation by Cha’s family for a conceptual art study centre, as well as an accompanying online archive that was launched in the late 1990s.
