They Last
4 mins.
(with Charles Kremenak)

In 1956, at the age of sixty, Tressa Prisbrey began a 20+ year work of collecting discarded objects at the dump and building them into a series of paths, shrines, and bottle houses on her small property in Simi Valley. They Last imagines future alien archeologists in hovercraft excavating this evidence of the past and reflects on the desire to create, preserve, and re-use, despite the impermanence of things.
