Leaf Mask


A poetry/story/song piece relating one (wo)man's struggle to balance modern living with survival of the earth. It explores the peculiar predicament the 20th Century American enjoys in relation to time and money and his fellow beings. The genesis of Leaf Mask was the variable collection of inter-related performance vignettes which comprised the video performance, FRAGMENTS. Leaf Mask utilizes camera generated imagery which is manipulated through various computers (Amiga/Digiview; MindSet; Apple II; Fairlight CVI).
