Elizabeth I (Libby) from under her canopy of eternal warmth, (Jake Barningham)
No list from me this year, my cinematic receptivity having been clouded by a mental fog that has yet to fully dissipate. I will, however, take the opportunity to once again (inadequately) recognize the work of Jake Barningham, whose new videos provided much needed bursts of clarity in times of optic need. A more thorough critical examination of Jake's artistry will hopefully come soon (from someone possessing greater verbal dexterity than myself), in the meantime some of his older work is available for viewing here: http://vimeo.com/jakebarningham.
Jacob Waltman is the author of Making Light of It.
