Matthew Barney

DVD, 7.5 X 5.25 X .5" (in box), 2005

I tracked down bootleg copies of all five films in the Cremaster Cycle as part of my research for the project, so I decided to create an update of the original VHS "Matthew Barney" bootleg. Of course, I didn't want to just sell a regular copy of the original video. My version of Cremaster 2 starts off as a fairly good quality copy of the film. However, after about 10 minutes the picture gets very dark. You can sort of follow what's happening, but the film becomes much more abstract.
