The birth of my first grandchild has been the occasion for my most recent DVD installation, Kyle. Along with a video projection of the mostly sleeping and mute newborn, the piece features genetic and non-genetic relatives of the still malleable and unformed infant, each of whom will ultimately contribute significantly and in very different ways to who he is and who he becomes. This installation continues my exploration of family, history, memory and identity. As in life, all my work with technology moves through multiple generations in order to reach its finished state. Just as I am bringing this next generation of family into my artistic explorations and continue to develop other new work, I will explore difficult issues and challenging new technologies as a means of expression, hopefully finding some answers and raising new questions along the way.
