I excavate material from VHS cassettes discussing the human body, the human nervous system, nostalgia, and memory. My work examines the process of coping and caregiving for a parent’s illness from a young age to adulthood. By quilting from VHS magnetic tape, neon lights, installations, and videos; I recall a time of my life when my mother was not suffering from multiple sclerosis, and was running a video store in the early 1990s. My series, Video Magic, reflects upon the empathetic idea of what and how something can be cared for, and how to extend the life of something; whether it be a person or a VHS cassette.
