A review of work by this Halifax video-based artist, with particular attention to the major work, Reader by the Window, which was exhibited at Presentation House Gallery in early summer, 1997. A video projection and sound environment which draws on a personal archive of video landscape walks recorded over 6 years in Canada, Japan, France, the U.K. and U.S., Reader by the Window "explores the common experience of 'the familiar' in unfamiliar places, where the boundaries of our identities blur into our surroundings and the strange becomes unrecognizably ours" (the artist). The publication also includes two videoscripts by the artist, and an essay by Peacock about the making of Sirensong.
Essays by Paula Levine (San Francisco), Robert Sherrin (Vancouver), and Jean Gagnon (Montréal). Karen Love, Editor and Curator.
