Chandler Yonkers is an M.A. Candidate in Media Arts at the School of Visual Art and Design. For this thesis exhibition, Vignettes, Chandler invites the public to view an installation that revolves around nostalgic connections to home video. In this project, the content of various VHS cassette tapes and the environments in which those forms of media are produced and viewed will be recreated for a unique viewer experience. Each installation plays a separate home video tape belonging to the artist, but re-contextualized to touch on a variety of subjects ranging from mental illness to power dynamics within the familial sphere. The tapes are heavily edited but presented in a way that suggests they were discovered that way, just as we have all typically stumbled across old VHS videos in our homes.
