Nomads (1986)

“Nomads is an autobiographical tape drawn from the artists’ attempts to balance mundane, material ‘reality’ with their dreams, aspirations and spiritual lives…  Nomads combines the conventions of a home movie, a science program, and a song-filled travelogue.  In this mix, the artists add symbolic allusions as well as the electronic image manipulation which is characteristic of their work, to meditate on central problems of contemporary existence: on the appearance and disappearance, or location and dislocation of the individual in a time of tremendous insecurity and cultural change.”  ~Bob Riley, “Histories: New Video Art,” ICA-Boston, 1988
