Not Much, and Then Some, 2009
Color video with sound
As artists and parents, we whipsaw between the magnitude of the responsibility of raising children and our absolute delight in watching them awaken to the world around them. Through a series of interviews with young children and their parents, the short video Not Much, and Then Some seeks to present a mixture of parental insights with childhood playfulness and whimsy. Threaded throughout the video, we relay some of our own sense of frustration, loss, and ultimately a shift in perspective about our own creative practice.
