EXquisite Corpse Cinema

Out There #1 Maastricht, 2014
How to Draw Clouds (2006) was included in the two-part exhibition Out There that included venues in Maastricht (October / November 2014) and Rotterdam (February 2015), The project was made in collaboration with the Dutch Photography Museum in Rotterdam, and presented present-day landscape images by contemporary artists who worked with various media such as video, photography and ‘net art’. The artworks were distributed over two exhibition zones and two cities. They were part of the 500-year-old tradition of landscape art and at the same time stretched and made current the traditional frames of meaning through new techniques and views.
The Long Walk, King County, WA, 2011
As a member of Seattle Experimental Animation Team (SEAT), made a series of 110 drawings on gesso primed cardboard of a man walking, and hung them clothesline style along a string of rope attached to trees. The drawings were then made into an animated film and projected on kites hung from the ceiling of a barn along with animations of other SEAT members.
THE LONG WALK, led by Susan Robb, was a work of land art featuring elements of performance and social engagement.
