Burning Boots
Lika River, Croatia, 2001
DV-installation, 8 min.

Burning Boots was conceived in January and filmed in July, 2001. It was originally intended as an acute letter of dismay to my Senator and was born of the need to express my profound disillusionment at what had transpired in Florida during the 2000 U.S. Presidential Elections. Later, when I discovered that the State of Wyoming had no liberal Senators in Washington to listen to my bellowing, I reverted to an artistic expression which took the form of a video document.
