Tenley Tapes

This ain’t your momma’s home video. From Tenleytown to St. Paul, let’s check out what Alex Edelman ‘17 did with his summer.

Created in the network of tunnels that exists underneath tenleytown, the cultural capitol of our nation’s capitol, washington, dc. video is distinctly different from film. video exists in color, static, and roadside tvs. i made both of these videos over the course of the summer, enabled by a series of wires and adaptors. taping footage with cameras from 1991, digitizing it, recording back to tape, and degrading it yielded some of the textures in these videos. filming myself being mashed into video feedback and placed into a storm drain was an essential summer activity. hopefully, in coming weeks, i’ll have a videocassette coming out that compiles a year of footage of bands playing, and a few sequences of tubes and hopes ! keep your eyes peeled for more from tenley tapes.
