An Archival Perspective

Video projection 68 x 76 inches

An Archival Perspective is a series of video projections that makes use of Sohn’s conservation archives. Using photographic documents, Sohn produces an archival journey that reveals the spaces of a very early example of a spring box mattress.

This micro world seen in fragmented images allude to that of a vast landscape. By stretching time, these short films also convey the monotony of the labor-intensive work of a conservator.
