In Dreams and Autumn is a three-channel synchronized video installation. A composite of the three channels presented side by side in one video is available from Video Data Bank for educational use only.

This is the last piece in the constellation of works including Kicking the Clouds, Mnemonics of Shape and Reason, and the text Hello Trouble as well as a series of etched photographs.

We’re the children of a great love, and a great violence.  
We’re the grandchildren of a great love, and a great violence.  

A letter to a sibling, reflecting on our pasts and ourselves, and the parents and grandparents we knew and could never know. Told in three channels, the voices and the texts overlap and are distant, where a return to the road is a return to solitude as the memories of our grandmothers shape a present loneliness and a gathering of futures.

In Dreams and Autumn is available for educational use only as a three-channel composite. Please contact VDB for exhibition requests.
