This is a Self Portrait by Shea Fitzpatrick

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

An interesting, somewhat meta student film in which collage techniques were used to generate the text. Shea Fitzpatrick has been making poetry films for more than a year. Here’s her description for this one:

FILM441: Video Art with Janne Hoeltermann. Assignment 3: Manipulate time.

Text is comprised of individual lines and fragments of lines taken from 2 years worth of personal journal entries, rearranged into a disjointed poem. The piece is conceptually aimed to embody that a mind does not exist chronologically, and that it creates chronology to form meaning. It is also very much a self-portrait of hyper-self-criticism in the artistic process. Libraries are giant brains.
Music is an excerpt from “Available Forms I,” by Earle Brown.
