FILM & VIDEO SCULPTURE
Luminous Greenhouse (2011) is a video sculpture consisting of a digital film loop displayed on a 7-inch screen enclosed in a miniature horticultural greenhouse.
Here the unruly forces of nature intermingle, preserved on light sensitive photo emulsion, and loop endlessly like events in the natural world even while constrained in a structure intended for human dominance over Nature.

Remote Sensing video sculpture (1986) incorporates ideas about archaeology, film as artifact and American kitsch, and raises questions about the meaning of "evidence." A small video screen buried in an archaeological cut shows an endless pan of concrete wigwams by the roadside. Projecting near the image are actual shards of Indian pottery and modern technological refuse. Remote Sensing asks viewers to be amateur anthropologists and to consider the "image" of culture as a dubious stand-in for its reality.
