Sudden Video is a compilation of five short
works. The title of this series is informed by
an anthologized literary genre that consists
of short, dense and economic works:
"Sudden Fiction". Inspired by this genre, I
coined the phrase Sudden Video as an
attempt to make short video works which
express complex social, historical and
emotional predicaments not easily digested
nor intellectually reconciled with lingering
affect. By using fictionalized narrative
accounts with simple metaphoric images,
this work consciously eschews familiar
media images predictably associated with
traumatic events witnessed either personally
or mediated and presented publicly. The work
passes quickly - a kind of hit-and-run approach.
