Coding and Decoding
David Sherman worked at Canyon Cinema from 1989 to 2001, and in 1993 began the artist collaboration Total Mobile Home, the first microcinema. He has selected a program of films that explore place and time through artists’ observations and others’ documentation. Archival and found footage, popular culture, and home movies are collaged or appropriated. Sherman’s To Re-edit the World is assembled from four boxes of film material and audiotapes made by Beat-era filmmaker Dion Vigné, reconstituting a lost history of San Francisco.
