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

Movie Max

I put my trial Widows piece in MAX on a random play (random frame plays every second), and I thought that it actually worked quite well. Maybe random play is good for durational pieces because it changes the sense of time and the delivery of time/ content, allowing the audience to "connect the dots" as it were, at there own speed.

It works for Widows much in the way cross cutting does in a narrative film.
