Tom Kalin, Ashes, 2014

Tom Kalin photographed thousands of high resolution still images and “stitched” them into a moving image layering dates and moments from Kalin's personal world with the public and global history of AIDS.

The work was commissioned by Visual AIDS as part of “Alternate Endings,” a video program launching December 1, 2014, to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Day With(out) Art—a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis.
