With the rise of new technologies in the digital realm, physical media has become a rare commodity, particularly with motion picture film. As institutions move towards a more dominant digital platform to showcase cinematic projects, works on celluloid are often discarded, leaving them as “orphans” in the analog world. Orphan works are copyrighted material that no longer have an owner or sponsorship, thereby falling into the public domain or becoming obsolete. In his Orphan Morphin’ presentation, filmmaker and curator Craig Baldwin “surfs the wave of obsolescence” using spoken word, graphics and motion picture clips to advocate for the radical re-working of marginalized film material in the forms of collage, compilation-doc and speculative fiction.
