My first video, a three-channel installation called "The Summit," just debuted this weekend at the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs. Thanks to the many geniuses who worked with me on the video and made it happen, and to Liz Collins, whose installation "Energy Field" houses my piece!
