PASOS: Video Installations by Marsia Alexander-Clarke i s a solo exhibition that features a series of video works and digital print s on stretched canvas that are based on recorded imagery in Alexander-Clark e's garden. The images are made abstract via small cropped cells of recorde d video material which Alexander-Clarke calls "marks" in loose reference to the mark in drawing and painting. Alexander-Clarke is interested in develo ping silent video pieces similar to notated musical compositions with the u se of small fragments of recorded video material.

These marks are imbedded with a fleeting refere nce to nature yet present a deliberate suspension from expectation thereby creating a sense of tension between what is seen and not seen. The linear o r rectangular marks are geometrical forms full of texture\, color\, movemen t and light. The video screen is used as a dark ground upon which the marks function interactively\, developing varied relationships as they move and change through time.

T he emphasis in these compositions is a focus on the interaction of the tens ion or harmony created by the marks internal texture and movement\; on the marks placement\, varying durations\, and repetition and on the marks dynam ic relationship to the "negative" space of the rectangular screen.
Alexander-Clarke is interested in creating complex compositions through the least means and building an a tmosphere of attention to a totally visual experience.

< span style="font-size: small\;"> "Through this work I hope to bring a sense of discovery and enjoyment in the expansive language imbedded in very simp le forms."
