Opening is a multi-dimensional voyage into a fractal shamanic reality of the empowered goddess.
Tied is about being bound and releasing that constriction.
Working with Video
I've been working with video since 2004. It began with an art film called Terracqueo which was shown at the Berkeley Video and Film Festival and received a Grand Festival Award. It was seen by a friend who contacted a producer who then commissioned me to create a short film about a Native American Viet Nam vet to show at the Cannes Film Festival. It was called White Bear's War. It showed there in 2005 along with Terracqueo.
I had been working with multiple images and overlays first with negatives in the darkroom and then photoshop for several years in order to express the multi-layered, multi-dimensional nature of reality I perceive. I also had been creating music where I overlayed multiple tracks to create finished pieces. Video was a new way for me to combine both along with the element of time, sound and music.
