"unsaid: a speaking portrait of Victoria Vesna" (2010) (9 min. 42 sec.)
The body of "speaking portrait" work (including "unsaid" and "Alana") comprises portraits of individuals engaged in core discourse--speaking that comes to fresh areas of essential concern to the person, a living thinking opening some kind of new speaking for that person. In this way it belongs to what the artist calls open poetics--new language-making that arises spontaneously in the domain of direct discourse.
Other work related to the larger speaking-portraits project includes "art is," "poetry is," "music is," and similar works, focused inquiries on particular topics-- artists saying what art is, poets saying what poetry is, etc. Speaking portraits like this one, in contrast, discover their subject matter in the process of intense dialogue.
