Displacement is a video piece that shows burning papier mâché houses floating on a copper sheet made buoyant by a lifesaver. The work evokes a sense of universality of loss of home and place. 
Hope is a video that is shown in conversation with Displacement and was made by transforming the frames of Displacement with a kaleidoscope.
Through the Garden Fence is a video work that consists of a compilation of video footage from the late 1950s and early 1960s from my extended family archive.
Erasing the trace is also to make it appear is a video piece that documents my process of painting landscapes, which are simultaneously erased. The painting video is layered with other footage and images of me walking. The piece is installed on a small screen in a small wooden wagon with wire mesh on the sides.
