daddie - statement

"daddie" is a very personal work that explores my father's influence on my psyche. In this piece I struggle with the stringent work ethic that he passed onto me; he forgot to tell me that sometimes you can stop and relax. As I exorcise the demons that this has produced for me, they emerge in my artwork. "daddie" was shot on a train during an excursion to see my father on Father's Day, June, 1999. The camera functioned as a mediator between my resentment toward him and my need to confront the legacies he passed onto me. The images that you see were shot in one continuous sequence, both while the train was sitting still and moving. They used up an entire 4MB disk containing 44 images. The words were recorded two months later directly into my computer as an exercise in stream of consciousness. Listen to what I say and you'll be told about the whole experience. Once I had the words captured in the computer I knew exactly which sequence of images they belonged with. The result is "daddie".
