Home Movies

Ron Lambert

04:00, Color, Stereo, US, 2011

After producing a series of videos based on the urban environment I decided to focus on the area I live in. Home Movies is made of images of houses for sale in the Inglewood neighborhood of Nashville. The windows of the houses were keyed out and implanted with archived footage that resembles the idealism of the development of the suburban neighborhood. The footage is comprised of informational films from the 1940’s and 1950’s. This public domain footage reflects and American ideal. Each scene is moved with the beep used to tell a teacher to advance the film frame during slide lectures.
