This nine-part video strains childhood through a history of reproduction, culling pictures from the LumiƩres to the present day in order to find the future in our past. Here are children of pictures, as pictures, the ones who will walk on our graves, granted a legacy of framing that has helped shape their lives, and their ability to grieve those no longer around to share them.

A video in nine parts: In the Future (3 min), Jack (15 min), Last Thoughts (7 min), Portrait (4 min), Secret (2 min), In My Car (5 min), The Game (5.5 min), Scaling (5 min), Imitation of Life (21 min).
