This is my attempt to reconcile the many ideas I have of Rollinsville, both real and imagined. I represent it through archival postcards and mining maps, Google Earth imagery, as well as film shot thirty years ago when I was in film school.
Special thanks to Sylvie van Helden, as well as the Vimeo Gang collective, Jessie Rodriguez and Casey Koehler, who participated in the creative process.
