audio/video ~ 11:36
second collaboration with Michael Fleming

from Michael's website:
Three scenes reflecting on paradise, lust and hell.
In ‘the Garden of delight’ beauty and evil go together like in a dream. We dive into a world of erotic derangement, inhabited by dancing lovers, lustful mutated baboons, tropical birds, deformed pin-ups, butterflies and body-builders.
This hand-manipulated collage film, made entirely out of 35 and 8mm found-footage, explores the marriage between heaven and hell, our irresolvable endless conflict that goes with human nature.
Inspired by the triptych ‘the Garden of Delight' by Hieronymus Bosch.

included in Found Footage Magazine's 2022 "Found Footage & Collage Films
Selected Works" compilation, alongside films by Bill Morrison & Peggy Ahwesh: PURCHASE HERE

I was very fortunate that some friends at BU 
came down into the basement studio there for a recording session, 
creating most of the material for the film.
