Video Notebooks
is an early work by San Francisco artist Joel Glassman, who in recent years has given up video and photography for body building as sculpture. Consisting of segments subtitled “Dangling Pans,” “Mimicking a Right Angle Kicking a Paint Bucket in My New House in a Corner,” etc., Video Notebooks exposes issues involving narration and chance, the relation of on- to off-screen space, and the framed space as arena or notebook of action.

The Roof
employs the familiar image of the roof and familiar sounds of lunchtime to consider the separation/relation of image and sound, and the ability of either to reinforce and/or undermine the other.
