Sonnet: A series of 3-minute videos documenting my four sons from 1998.

Sonnet #1             exhibited at VIDEOTREE, Firenze, Italy; MiC ( Moving Image Centre), Auckland, NZ

Sonnet #2 : Created while in residency : The Banff Centre ‘Up Front and Personal’ Thematic Residency, Media Visual Arts, Banff, Canada; 4th annual VANCOUVER VIDEOPOEM FESTIVAL ‘More Than Words’, Vancouver, Canada Nov 14 – 16, 2002

Sonnet #2
I used interactive software, Isadora, a graphical programming environment, to ‘edit’ the images. The frequency of my voice detailing my sons’ body measurements and pocket money triggers videos of each son.
