This is magic in a can. I did not make it. I channeled it in a trance (accompanied by a horrible headache) created by an old rotten cigar and several tiny bottles of liquor that were found in the dumpster.

This video poem written on a window during a storm is about dumpster diving and death. Copyright 1989 Lee Bridgers/Musiek. Music is copyright Billy Joel. I did not use his music. The ghost of Sarah Weinberg placed it onto the tape when I was editing. A cassette was found in the dumpster. The image was edited in-camera in one sitting, then the music on the unmarked cassette was dubbed in-camera onto the original without monitoring. To show you just what I thought I Billy Joel, I left Sarah's Bill Joel albums in the dumpster. All those moments where sound and image blend to break your heart are purely accidental and I truly believe this to be done by the ghost spirit of the woman in the poem.

This was originally an interactive video art piece shown in galleries, independent cinemas and art schools. It was accompanied by the artist who told the story and handed out the personal effects of the subjects.
