First time out of film into video: video as a willing participant in performance.

Motomanhattan/The Art of Falling performance installation
2007
film/dv; 6-minute loop of overlapping content that stood alone as 6-minute that, as a longer piece, accompanied the live Catherine Hourihan 5-dancer performance.


A very collaborative work developed over 3 years; but we worked very individually, perhaps both as choreographers: Catherine with dancers; me with screens.

super-8 and live band


Life, its spectacles and subtexts. Played with Multicide (PL) and Katrin Regelski sculpture in Tábor and Hamburg, Germany in 1996 as part of the CESTA and Fact eV Orient to Occident Hamburg festivals

Not exactly a collaboration. I shot and edited this dance piece choreographed by Selene Colburn in San Francisco in 1993. In 1994, I performed live in another version of the dance piece and at one performance this movie played behind the dancers. I added this soundtrack, provided by the Italian group CCC CNC NCN.

Artist as Ecologist: Film in Vivo—collaborations and experiments—from the beginning.
"Filming the world around me, I started with what I could see. And I could make this world into whatever story I thought it would tell: self-explanatory in its materiality, but any fiction could be molded around this reality. I am still making stories this way..."
