This two-part video is my first narrative video work and is still very important to me. It made it when I felt that nobody cared what I did, and that feeling gave me freedom. After that, although still nobody cared, there was always the slight suspicion that someone did, a constant thing to overcome.
The video is not edited and is without music; the camera and voice alone provide rhythm. The photographs, some of which are pasted over with paper drawings, come from my family's photo album and are supplemented by my archive and current media images. Some of the faces are overlaid with masks, which abstracts the biographical element. Both videos examine family processes and their significance on the later self-image.
