Wind Between States (2010)
2 channel HD loop for Installation

"Wind Between States" is a dual screen video installation. The videos pose a reconsideration of perception from both sides of the camera by confusing the relationship between subject, viewer and author. The dual screens maintain a simultaneous dialogue to emphasize an exchange between conventions of cinematic and photographic portraiture involving time, stillness and duration. I drew from my own family to create portraits of generations of men, women and children that both deconstruct and transmit structures of lineage. Audio from the fairytale, “Little Red Riding Hood”, and anonymous cues given to the characters, problematize methods of childhood socialization and art historical representations of children that render them voiceless.
