Dorothy's Making of

I had been observing the camera work of a friend, Robert Pacelli, who was playing with a "colorizer", using video feedback to capture a wide range of feelings and states of consciousness through imagery. I was fascinated, watching the many permutations of continually changing patterns. One day it occurred to me to use those special effects to tell a story about personal transformation, using video feedback to illustrate energetic movement within an individual's psyche. The result: CELEBRATION: I Am All of These
