“Time/space is the principal concern of my work. Video, the perfect mechanism for the study of time/space. Like the protagonist in Abbott's Flatland, I search for a look at the inside of space without opening the door.
“Time in Western culture is most often perceived as a linear movement: One moment follows the next in an inflexible progress toward infinity.... (This) is the axiom upon which our greatest cultural myth is based, i.e. the myth of progress. Remember General Electric's popular slogan of the 50s and 60s, ‘Progress is our most important product.'
“In my tapes I am attempting to develop a different perception of events as perceived in time/space. The information tells a story but it is not developed as a linear narrative. It is, instead, concerned circularly and wholistically.... There is order here but...it is a 3-D reversible spiral of the past, present, and future....
“The study of time/space is a study of cross cultural combinations of landscape, people, and ideologies. Nor Was This All By Any Means and One Man's Magic Is Another Man's Science describe culture but they are not documentaries in the traditional sense. They are instead a combination of documentary footage, staged situations, performance details and found media culled from T.V. and film. This variety is used to pace the tapes with rhythmic, contextual changes and, it is hoped, give a glimpse into the inside of space.” --Tony Ramos
