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.

Widows - Take 5

I edited down the Take 5 video to about 9 minutes so that it will loop about three times during my performance, if I complete the whole piece. The video is projected directly onto a the wall where it was shot, hightening the three dimensional effect of both the video and the wall, while collapsing reality by incorporating me into the video itself. When taped on my digital camera, I become part of and indistinguishable from the video. At times there are three ghosted images, partly opaque of me drawing on the chalkboard, as well as myself in real time drawing on the board. I am also partly transparent, as the wall and chalkboard are projected upon me.
