Geneology Project, 2006
10:00 min.
Placing the viewer at the center of a cinematic map, Genealogy Project navigates the personal struggle of an individual reflecting upon the suicide of a family member. Allegorical images map invisible threads of the suicide, weaving through the bloodlines of family history, personal narrative, unanswered questions and the ghosts of memory.




Chris Ernst is a media artist residing in the northeastern part of the United States. Aside from the occasional installation and various un-named, indescribable happenings, he primarily makes films and videos. This work often considers notions of spatial representation in cinema through such diverse points of reference as physical location, emotional perception, structural abstraction and memory mapping. Chris has shown his work internationally at festivals and confluences, and is currently an MFA candidate and instructor at the University at Buffalo Department of Media Study.
