"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."

Filmed in 2006 at her upstate New York home and during the installation of "Buckets of Rain" (2006) in New York City, Judy Pfaff discusses the emotional and creative journey she goes on while conceptualizing, making, and ultimately looking back at her installations. Pfaff, who begins creating with a sense of what she wants her work to feel like but with very few concrete ideas, relies upon unplanned elements to enter the art so that she herself is surprised with the results.
