    MUSEic Of The BODy, in many ways is not only a tribute to Charlotte Moorman and Nam June Paik both well known artists and musicians but also a pivotal experience for Greenfield. It was the first time she directed a large scale multi media stage event that would influence her own work for the next decade. Her subjective camera zooms in and out at a dizzying pace on performer Suzanne Gregoire, who is completely nude in a pair of stilettos and a long string of extra large pearls. She is bound and tangled in the expansive string of pearls while she plays Nam June Paik's interactive piano/video installation Pyramid- Interactive with her convoluted body. She pounds the piano in a desperate physical wail. The audience is given the ultimate impression of internal calamity pulled in a cerebral storm of transgressing emotions. Her image fills the mountain of screens, she hammers and tears at her pearls, her eyes make contact with the audience, her body shakes and quivers. The accompanying soundtrack facilitates and promotes this increasing transgression by mixing the rogue piano notes with the classic sounds of Beethoven's piano sonata. Her head reaches back, the pearls tighten, she exhales, the piano fades, it is understood this dance continues on in an ethereal sphere now. for more visit us at http://www.creativethriftshop.com/ Amy Greenfield MUSEic Of The BODy 2009 (1994), film, color, sound, edition of 10, run time 8:03 minutes

      The woman is now glistening sculpture moving in the ocean tides, rolling into the heart of a waves, rising, striding against them, being swept out, and finally emerging in strength and joy, deeper than hearts agony (Neitzche). Tides draws inspiration from Isadora Duncans Dance Of The Future We do not stand on the beach and inquire of the ocean what was its movement in the past and what will be its movement in the future. The movement . . . is eternal to its nature. Through illusions created by camera and editing, time and space turn over and over on themselves as the viewer participates in this eternal dream made real. for more visit us at http://www.creativethriftshop.com/ Amy Greenfield, Tides, 2009 (1982), film, edition of 10, run time 12:01 minutes

        A woman the artist herself- completely covered with sun drenched wet, clay-like mud plunges and runs and falls and writhes and rolls and rises and slides through a silent world of wet earth. The close-up camera (by Academy award-winner Hilary Harris) moves with and against her movements to turn action into a ritual-like moving cinema-sculpture which communicates universal primal energies. Through the close-up symbiosis of camera and body, this moving image becomes the experience of complex metaphor uniting death with birth, the heroic with the sexual. for more visit us at http://www.creativethriftshop.com/ Amy Greenfield, Element, 2009 (1973), film, edition of 10, run time 12:01 minutes
