The Green Fog
Whether or not you’ve seen Hitchcock’s Vertigo, we want you to get lost in the mysteries and delights we found in making our own adaptation. Our medium is footage repurposed from movies and television shot or set exclusively in San Francisco. Our version, shaped for our own pleasure out of newly defamiliarized material, is more a Vertigo “shape” that somewhat rhymes with, occasionally reconfigures, and sometimes flips like a fried egg the savagery and victimhood of the annihilating original. Sit back and let the emulsions, pixels and taxidermy dust wash over your eyeballs!
