My Heart the Historian

Maureen Bradley

2001, 02:15 minutes, colour, English


An experimental instructional video on learning how to forget... "Why is the measure of love loss?" Jeannette Winterson's ageless question is turned around in this meditation on losing it. Veteran queer media artist Maureen Bradley adds another installment in the growing series of "My Heart" videos excavating the past with the precision of a historian in a determined effort to erase memory. An emphatic visual track adds crisp counterpoint to the voice as we are bombarded with a hyper real stream of accelerated highly digital images that undermine the very notion of "seeing", knowing or remembering the truth.
