Burning Boots


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.

Burning Boots - slide collages

2001 - 2004

Burning Boots, Nippes (2001) and Burning Boots, Zagreb (2001) are studies created during the planning phase for the video production. The 5th Amen, Sing-along (I & II) and Glory Flakes belong to a series of images created early in 2003 which investigate a variety of mythological origins in American society and their current relevance, or irrelevance, to the emerging needs of western civilization. The setting of these compositions is the Medicine Bow Mountains near Laramie in southeastern Wyoming. These mountains, as their name reflects, were sacred to the Plains Native Americans who lived there prior to their forced removal. The slide-collage technique, cutting slides of different places and events to create new compositions using paper staples as a binder, is an important integral part of these works.
