69 Love Songs is a three-volume concept album composed of 69 love songs, all written by Magnetic Fields in 1999. I spend that year listening to this album of ironic love songs, with my first real girlfriend. At the time we were attending the Evergreen State College and I made this thirty-second video portrait of her, as part of an assignment. The film spends the next 13 years, forgotten on a drive in my closet. In 2011, Evergreen asked me to create work for a solo exhibition in the Photoland gallery. I wanted to make something reflective of the time I'd spent there. So, I exported the film into 69 digital still frames. I took the digital code from each frame and combined it with the digital code from each song three-volume album. Each resulting image contained a song, embedded in its data, which bend the form of the image. I printed these files as inkjet negatives and then printed those negatives in the ICP color darkroom, as darkrooms are where I spent the majority of my time that year.
