“The Eternal Frame” (1975)

“The Eternal Frame” is a reenactment video made by two artist groups from San Francisco in 1975. The two groups,  T.R. Uthco and Ant Farm produced and reenacted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy from 1963. They were going for two main messages from this piece. The first was that such an event could never be reenacted and the second being how our media reacted on the situations and what they focused on. What made this piece go one step further is the level of detail that was put into the video. The creators were trying to make a statement on how we live our lives constantly paying attention to our media and how it almost gains control over how we think and feel.
