Through a variety of media, including film, video, sound, painting and drawing the body of work presented in the show explores tensions between the inevitability of the passing of time and our desire to hold onto and preserve experiences.

The film/video work, "HOLD" (1996) exploits the fact that film is made up of separate frames. The majority of the film features a new person on every frame, or every 1/18th of a second. Although for certain periods of the video, two or three people are held longer by using consecutive frames to jump back and forth between people, the sound and mechanism of the fim is relentless; no resolution is reached, we continue to move forward.
