My work in video encompasses artists' videos as well as short documentaries on artists and their ideas. The collisions and incompatibilities of parallel media and disciplines, creating puns or "failures" of communication, seem to me the most exciting and fertile places for exploration.


I use video the way I might use drawing, first to capture material, and then to respond to it as the basis for further ideas. The actual moment of using the camera to record my visual curiosity about a site simultaneously elicits questions, feelings, phrases and propositions that become the core concept around which a movie begins to cohere.
