Widowsweave is an awareness raising series of performances highlighting the conditions of Iraqi Widows who often struggle to acquire even basic necessities such as clean water or adequate shelter. Through artistic durational activities the artist and public participants mark 3,000,000 lines representing the number of Iraqi widows from 30 years of war, tyranny and sanctions.


Kevin Valentine will have three new pieces in the Faculty Show at North Central College, Naperville. The reception is April 8th, from 6-8

Thoughts on final Interactive Proposal

What I'd like to do for the interactive final is a combination of prototypes:

1. I'd like to have my Three Million Widows book case be interactive, so that when a viewer removes the book from the case, the video will play, either in sequence or randomly, with speed varying depending on proximity of the book to the box, or something like that.

2. I want to learn to control a motor to make it spin, again variably, depending on distance or movement of viewer.

3. I'd like to have my TMWidows proposal/prototype be interactive, with a method for registering the chalk marks, This could also relate to prop 1, in that a video could also play depending on the action of the viewer.

Extra: I'd still like to have an interactive cabinet, with various sounds and videos interacting with the opening of drawers, windows, proximity etc...
