Periphery: Videos 1-3
are the first installments in an ongoing documentary project chronicling the personal experiences of Americans — New Yorkers mostly — and their specific responses to world events. The first part was filmed 5 weeks after September 11, 2001 and part two was filmed in July of 2002. The project evolved as a response to what can be described as media complicity in creating a seemingly endless war, a war that is inextricably linked to private interests but is couched in patriotic fervor. The video explores how ordinary people — not WTC workers, widows or firemen — cope with the new, immediate aspects of a changed world. Parts 4 and 5, shot in intervals over the years, are in post-production
Periphery was screened at the New York Video Festival at Lincoln Center in July of 2002.
Projects have been screened at film festivals, theaters, galleries and universities internationally. Photography work has appeared in numerous publications.
