Video Drawings

1985, 6:35 min, color, sound

Rife with feeling and movement, Video Drawings is an expressionistic, animistic work that evokes the human condition. Created and then manipulated in real time with the Fairlight CVI, and scored to haunting Senegalese music (with Peter Gordon on saxophone), Fitzgerald's painterly landscape suggests human and animal life, suffering, destruction and hope through a cacophony of shifting, organic shapes and bright colors. The sensuous and harrowing images coalesce to form a video lament of emotional power.

Saxophone: Peter Gordon. Kora/Voice: Almamy Cissokho.
