The official documentation of ‘Genesis’ consists of a 10-minute sequence of still photographs, taken by resident artist Michelle Girardello, with accompanying audio by Jon Manases Hernandez. Hernandez composed the audio introduction from recordings of Chautauqua lectures in the institution’s archives, and transitioned into music that he composed during the time in residence at VACI. The audio thus references the history of the institution and the insertion of a new chapter by YFFY and fellow artist residents.
YFFY were producers and directors of the project.
