In medieval times a, “Book of Hours” was a devotional volume, pages of text decorated with elaborate ornamentation. Annie MacDonell marries the modern form of the film-diary (Mekas style) – capturing, in fugitive motion, daily incidents of work and play at home – with echoes of this medieval practice, finding and collecting the vibrant patterns in reproduced images or carpets. Words inspired by Georges Perec and clips from Yvonne Rainer’s 1970s films – shot off a charmingly uncleaned laptop screen – broaden the reference-set and deepen our understanding of this intimate chronicle of movements in space.
