*The Film of Her*. 1996. USA. Directed by Bill Morrison. Courtesy of Bill Morrison

This group of 16mm prints—the majority of which were created as visual components of performances produced by the Ridge Theatre—marks the start of Morrison’s career as a filmmaker, and highlights his narrative preoccupation with journeys, science, the process of making motion picture film stock, and the visual effects of decomposing film.
