Made over six years in the hotels of six different countries, the “Hotel Diaries” chart the “War on Terror” era of Bush and Blair through a series of video recordings that relate personal experiences to the ongoing conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Israel/Palestine. In these works, which play upon chance and coincidence, the hotel room is employed as a “found” film set, where the architecture, furnishing and decoration become the means by which my own small adventures are metaphorically linked to major world events.
