""Her latest works is less about being affected then to learn one’s own capacity to affect; to compose images with power to affect the body of the spectator.
In video art she developed both the ability to be affected and the capacity to affect. Early on she found what was going to be essential in her art; the movement of the human body. Among other things this meant the extraction of dialogue in favor of the language expressed by the body or, more correctly, the composed expressions of images in which the body is an essential part.
So this essential position hold by the body in her art made it quite natural for her to turn to video-dance-performance field.""

Oi Kat,
menina tô numa loucura por aqui!
Ainda não usei o video, mas quero muito.
As coisas mudaram um pouco de rumo, da questão da mulher fomos para a questão das origens/miscigenação.
Enfim, em breve te escrevo direito contando as novidades! hehe
