saw this via a FB post a couple days ago and the image has stayed in my mind so am capturing it.
Found this post on BRUCE CONNOR
Seeing his films in graduate school was one of those ah ha moments for me. I still remember going to his visit artist talk because I went to all the visiting artist talks. And his films using found and stock imagery opened up a entire new world for me and I can see started my ephemeral dissolving image obsession thing I have. I remember after the screening he said that he would show more films in one of the film classrooms and I went along hungry to see more. I can almost see myself then as I write this but I can’t see Bruce Connor – just his films.

watched Un Chien Andalou again and noticed for the first time the book the woman is reading and then throws down (toward the beginning) is open to a Vermeer painting. Also was very aware of how much this film influenced Maya Deren.
