The work is originally influenced by early memories of black and white film. I remember the excessive flickering light and sputtering sound, caused by broken film jumping out of the sprockets and voraciously "eating up the film." What fascinated me were the multiple images of the narrative being severely interrupted. Trevor Richardson, Director, Herter Gallery, University of Massachusetts, Amherst states, "For the artist, there was something compelling, one might even say aesthetically remarkable in the broken narrative that ensued; the resulting fracture between the transient, and fragmentary nature of the imagery with its sense of disrupted context, along with the illusion of movement and sound, came to evoke…'the place between seeing and not seeing…'
