"Early on when I started making theater productions there were video components mixed in, which I used to ‘spatialize’ the performance, so that led me to really have a need to start working with film and video. (‘Spatialization’ was a device that was very immediate- a way to make a small room or the space of a theater very large, and to suggest other spaces within a small space.)"
