This film is the result of a collaboration between Julie Perini and the Earth. Julie used an old advertisement by General Electric about a woman alone on a dark street who seems scared but at the end of the ad she looks up to see lights have gone on and she feels safe. Julie cut this film into two-second strips (48 frames) and buried it in the ground. Each day for 20 days, she unearthed a strip of film and she then pieced it all back together. The dirt, water, worms and other earthly forces decayed the film and this final piece shows this gradual deterioration over time.
