EXPERIMENTAL  NARRATIVE ~ VIDEO

2002, Kumo ~ Live Life as Cloud

In 2002 I created a video named Kumo, which literally means "live life as cloud". The piece is a meditation inspired by a calligraphy artwork I discovered on my birthday while on a trip to Japan. The video was shown in 2002 as part of a video event at a local college in Arizona and again in 2003 as part of an installed environment in a museum in Mississippi.

2005, Desert Litany

Desert Litany was completed in 2005. In this piece I combined an environmental performance and vocalization in response to a particular environment, a land called the Diablo Trust, where I had been invited to create a unique work.

2006, Clean Sweep

The footage for Clean Sweep, completed in 2006, is of a closure ritual. As with any leaving, the feelings can be mixed. I was deeply rooted to the land in Arizona where I had lived for many years. This ritual was performed as a last action.
