Growing up, for some reason my family never owned a video camera—and yes they did exist even way back then. Consequently, I’m used to seeing myself in photos but not in action. I admit to having some discomfort at the thought. I don’t mind standing up in front of people and talking but somehow talking in front of a camera seems much more threatening to me.

Jim had suggested creating a video of me talking about me, me, me and my art work for a long time, but due to a distinct lack of enthusiasm on my part, it hadn’t happened. Until a few days ago. In preparation for teaching iPhone video workshops, Jim has been enlisting several people to participate in his process for use in his workshops. How could I refuse? So here’s the video, all 4 minutes and 7 seconds.
