Mirrors Trailer

Mirrors is the debut of Marc Dennis and Liron Unriech’s collaborative project.  Mirrors, a six channel video installation based on interviews of six Holocaust survivors conducted by Dennis and filmed by Unreich. For this project the artists assembled a varied list of six living survivors to portray and traveled to their homes to interview the subjects in an effort to commemorate the survivors and create an intimate paring of collective memory and emotion through storytelling. Utilizing installation and film and emanating from the history of portraiture, Mirrors is an unprecedented unique artistic approach to the conventions of Holocaust discourse by presenting individual vignettes that together create a layered portrait of a generation of survivors. The interviews include reoccuring motifs of strength, optimism, and chance and investigate themes such as transformation, faith, and memory within the realm of an extraordinary event.

Daniel Terna, Brooklyn NY

I first met Daniel Terna through his father, painter and Holocaust survivor Fred Terna. The Ripple Project has worked with Fred on several projects, including the multimedia exhibition Mirrors, and Shared Memory, a short film about his life of survival through art and creativity. At the premier of Shared Memory, Fred revealed to me he had a 20 something year old son named Daniel —  whose photography work was transitioning into the pursuit of film. Upon meeting Daniel at their brownstone in Brooklyn, I was surprised to learn this aspiring filmmaker was interested in making a film about his father’s road trips across the United States with his first wife Stella some 40 years ago. Inspired by images taken by Fred and Stella, Daniel set out fo retrace their travels, retake their images and frame the story of a woman who died before he was born. The short film Daniel Terna documents this journey of discovery for The Ripple Project’s Vignettes Series.
