Vita Brevis

Sheila Urbanoski

1993, 03:20 minutes, colour, English


This simply beautiful video uses sophisiticated computer applications in order to achieve a sense of simplicity in the piece. It is a non-narrative interpretation of a Romany folk song. Vita Brevis is the first half of a video diptych.
