For Shigeko Kubota the video image-making process is a cultural and personal experience. She has explored cross-cultural relationships in her video diaries, transient images captured by portable equipment while traveling—Kubota’s “comparative videology.” She has also combined fleeting video images with the “objecthood” of sculptural form in her series of video sculptures inspired by Duchamp.

“I’m a sculptor,” Kubota says in this interview with Jeanine Mellinger. “I want to make video, but I also want to make objects. The video part is my mirror for my memory, or my life, but the object is creating my creation.”

A historical interview originally recorded in 1983.
