Mike Hack makes videos – he's been making them for a long time. Over the years, they’ve seen shifts in technology, changes in culture, and different phases of Mike himself.
Mike is a man with autism. This influences the way that he lives, talks, behaves, thinks, and feels. It can be difficult for people without autism (neurotypicals) to understand Mike’s experience, however, through his videos, he provides an insightful visual memoir. haul gallery has worked with Mike to archive and present his videos for a wider audience.

MMXXI (2 Tapes)
Dir. Zoe Chronis 2021
USA 60 min
This video features two MiniDV tapes recorded with a 2002 Canon ZR45 camcorder. I performed all the editing in-camera during the course of my daily life using a method I call "Swiss-Cheesing"—randomly scanning back and forth on a tape, dropping new video through old footage. As far as I know there is no contemporary camera that allows this kind of digital chance-based editing. This is a video diary with a catch: recording a new entry destroys a segment of equal length. Juxtapositions between the two tapes occur by chance.

This is the film Grandma Sally made for her family. Well, technically I made this film. Also, Grandma Sally is not my grandmother, I have actually never met her in my life, I don’t even know her last name. This film is composed using clips from a RCA Small Wonder camcorder that Sally filmed videos on between 2009 and 2010. I bought the same camcorder at a flea market in 2022 for five dollars, she never cleared the memory card.

the tender place where the world breaks
Dir. Emily Van Loan 2021
USA 13 min
I tried for two years not to breathe or touch my body numb the bones settling crooked. Just be yourself! A voice breaks like leather cracking. Thinking is a skill that can be developed. The point to prove it didn’t happen because I’m not the—no one’s the one who would let this happen, bruises blooming and, dishes feathers and bones in the sink and the sky stretched taut black tarp, bloodroot shining and the creeks clotted with trash and it’s all my fault: my fault, I am the tender place where the world breaks.
