Lap video

Lap (colour)

This video was one of the pre-recorded tapes played during the performance, Lap (1976), and no live activity accompanied it. It was my first use of colour and made on the colour portapak provided to artists by the Canada Council under artist and video officer Michael Goldberg.

Lap 2

The following video excerpts were pre-recorded and played back during live performance of the same actions in Parts A & C of Lap. Lap was performed at St. Paul’s Centre (Toronto), Vehicule Art Inc. (Montreal), Parachute Centre for Cultural Affairs (Calgary) and Western Front (Vancouver) between November 1976 and February 1977.
