Hello, I'm Luther Price.
For the past decade,
what I've been working on
pretty much as a constant thing
is found footage,
creating these original,
hand-made, 16 mm films
that are one of a kind pieces
that are projection-ready.
I also enjoy found footage,
the manipulation of the footage,
whether it be painting it, burying it...
This could have been underground
for three months,
but I left it four months,
so now it's unprojectable.
This is another piece of film
that was buried
and it just went a little bit too far.
(Laughs)
Now you can just
put a dumpling in there instead.
So I work with slides too, of course,
as little collage pieces.
Do you know what these are?
Clown sprinkles.
(Laughs)
These are clown sprinkles.
Remember clown sprinkles?
MAN: What, for ice cream?
PRICE: Yeah.
These are the sprinkles you get
for ice cream.
I found that this belt itself
is just so gorgeous.

And that is the belt which has this, like
really nice, beautiful orange,
you know and the stars.
