Bio Tide I & II, 1988, 9 min., Colour [Videonale.3]

[Image source:]

The title, Biotide, expresses the fact that life on the earth are under influence of Moon's gravitational force in one way or another. Everyone knows about tidal wave; and it was an astonishment to me when I realised that the force which would change the sea level by meters, in fact has effect on our body the same way. The moon, the sea which is under the control of the moon, and the people who live by the sea and their sensitivity are themes of this work.(Michico Amali)

Viewers of Optics, 1987, 10:43 min., colour, sound [Videonale.3]

One peers through the binoculars of a statue upon the terrain of memory - an area of disaster... Pulling to a closer focus, the catastrophe seems to concern not the world at large but that of a relationship between a man and a woman. This view, too, is a distortion of distance. Closing in on the event, it becomes apparent that there is only one individual involved; that the male and female are aspects of a single psyche. (James Minnis)
