The Bolex film camera has been an important tool in my work.  I have considered the length of a Bolex shot as a conceptual container for moving images. These shots, about 27 seconds in length on my camera, lend themselves well to portraits, self-portraits and continuously moving landscape shots that I call ‘continuations’. I have made several multi-channel video pieces using grids of small monitors with a single 27-second shot on each monitor.  What Is Wrong With Me Has Always Been Wrong With Me is a set of nine self-portraits taken over a decade of shooting.
