Astoria Park (2014) is a short film by Anna Moser and Josiah Cuneo. The project began on September 28th, 2013, when Moser and Cuneo spent an afternoon together using handheld microphones and cameras to record their visual and aural impressions of Astoria Park in Queens, a site chosen for its unfamiliarity to both of them. An abandoned swimming pool conjured the uncanny sensation of an inverted or excavated monument. Rusty bars of a wrought iron fence were instrumentalized as the source of an echo chamber. The final work reveals traces of a single day filtered, deconstructed, and reassembled through collaboration and contingency. [Collages by Anna Moser. Sound by Josiah Cuneo. Hands variable.]
