Abstract
Shot around 1983, this footage first shows a man working on a farm and it exemplifies JoAnn Elam’s fascination for farm labor. The rest is rather dark, but it seems to be set inside Elam’s house, where the silhouette of a cat playing with a plant appears by the window. As many elements in this collection reveal, Elam filmed her cats and dogs repeatedly, as well as the lights and shadows she observed inside her house.
