DVD Compilation:

Speed (11:00, color, stereo, 1993)

This video explores the dimension that is filled by the spectator’s own projections; the space between the scenes, the poetic state that slips out of the cracks of reality.

Spanglish (15:00, color, stereo, 1994)

Spanglish signifies a concept of America requiring a new and closer continental identity in the light of cultural and artistic continental unity, a bridge across our divided cultures. This video, Spanglish, is coming directly from the soul of one of the spanglish zone’s inhabitants in an effort to represent its poetic essence.

UP (20:00, color, stereo, 1996)

This video is an attempt to reconnect my own dislocated sense of history through my bicultural understanding of America. In UP I am building a narrative that represents the hybrid character of my subjectivity.
