The video Time and Time Again was created during an extended collaborative project, Doing Time, Nothing But Time, with inmates at Northeast Correctional Center (NECC), a close-security men’s prison in Bowling Green, Missouri. The script is written as a long list of common cliches, proverbs, and other familiar sayings about time. Filmed inside the prison, the phrases are recited by a group of 20 actors from NECC. The language is generic and overly familiar, but who speaks makes all the difference to its meaning. This video originally screened during performances inside NECC in July 2008. Shown here in exhibition at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery, 2009, and at the Weisman Art Museum, 2010, Minneapolis. Produced, directed, filmed, and edited by Jan Estep. Written by Estep with contributions from Denzel Downing, Altonio Graves, Jimmie McGee, Travis Ray, and Stan Schell. Cast: Raynell Brandon II, Scott Brown, M.X. Campbell, Denzel Downing, Tony Drone, Mathew Fuqua, Altonio Graves, Howard Chris Harris, Peter Keil, James Laney, Charles Roy Mosley, Jeffrey Pollard Sr., Lance Pounders, Travis Ray, Stan Schell, Rodney Sheets, Frederick Starks, Robert Thenhaus, David X.
