Sonntag Platz (1982) 16mm, color, 2.25 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Cameraless

A word to Paul Klee. The first film upon which I painted. The texture here is smoother and the forms closed more than in theater films. Still I was occupied with the concerns I held dear as a painter.

Big Brother (1983) 16mm, color, 7 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Found Footage

A comic book/collage film. The images are taken from commercials (35mm and 16mm) and super-8. Sections of the frames were cut out and then placed into super-8 film frames which had been painted upon, a mouth here, a leg there. This film can also be read like a comic on the rewinds. The film was blown up to 16mm. Ironically my hope had been to keep the film in super-8 as a discourse on gauge chauvinism, one of the implications in the title.

Snow Movies (1983) 16mm, color, 8 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Environment & Nature

Shot in the winter landscape of upstate New York and in snow bound Cambridge, MA. I have broken down the various previews and scales to two dimensions will pixillation and framing. Phil S. says ('83) it was like watching a capsulized version of the history of western painting (I paraphrase).

Pilgrim's Progress (1985) 16mm, color, 8.75 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Cameraless

A discourse on marketing through images. The surface of the film is an abstract potpourri of polyrhythms, named items jumping into recognition here and there. I pulled magazine ink off the page with scotch tape and glued the tape strips onto film leader and rephotographed. It is a tale of coming to terms, or learning to relax and suspend disbelief.
