Abstract: My work is a personal narrative. I work primarily in the mediums of video and performance. The latter usually being in conjunction with the former. I often have difficulty defining which of these terms are the most important to me. Therefore, I have come to adopt the concept of "video performance." During my time in graduate school, I have struggled with the importance of formal properties in my work and questioned how important formality is to me. My thesis work shows that I have learned to use those properties when they are necessary and that I am also able to ignore them and let the piece be driven solely by its content.
