In terms of LINEAGE, what do you see as key points,
in the development of your language, from ancient expression to what your process is today ?

I grew up Roman catholic. That and my creative parents and Outside Grandmother and non- English speaking  grandparents from Italy are my lineage. Today I repeat the past.

What are the important EXPERIENCES / REALIZATIONS that moved you, towards making the work that you make today ?

Suffering and trauma have always been my materials for my work.

What are your thoughts on the relationship between the work and AUDIENCE / RECEIVER ?

Before I felt more healed I needed the audience. Now  I share with them.

What motivates you to introduce MATERIALS / OBJECTS into your work ?

 If they are needed I use them if not I don't.

What are your thoughts on SOUND / SILENCE in your process ?

Now I sing.......my favorite medicine.

What are your thoughts on TIME / RHYTHM in your process ?

Time is to be used to go beyond it. Duration helps that to happen and erases the feeling of waiting and past and future.

What are your thoughts on SPACE / EMPTINESS in your process ?

During eliminates time and creates space.

Where do you see the greatest challenges in your future process ?

Doing less.

If you had to use WORDS to describe what you do, what would those words be ?

Healing my past.

What is the question I fail to ask ?

How old are you and how does that matter? I am 76 in January. My body is my material . As it ages it becomes better and more interesting fodder.
