Leeks was videotaped in September of 1999 in the my vegetable garden just outside Shy Anne Studio in Tacoma, Washington. The concept was to establish photo-like framings letting the leek seed balls and stems move through the frame as effected by beas and wind--to map this seed crop (leeks were planted 17 months earlier) using timings that made sense to me as a time artist/improvisor.

I also concieved of the piece as presented in installations or live performances using 2-6 monitors, when possible. The original sounds were always performed live using my sculptural instruments. For this video, I have added an improvisation using my Mother's childhood violin.

The titile refers to the placement of the video image on the 16:9 black canvas.
