MY LIFE AS A GHOST

((1998, loop, anamorphic video for two projectors)   


Hahn's first videographic (linear) anamorphosis is My Life as a Ghost where he morphed 8 passport photos of himself (4 @ age 14, and 4 @ age 40) to simulate two series of motions, which are then projected laterally next to each other -  a reflection on the "geometry" of memory.  More recent portraits of the artist have sporadically been added to the work.
