Ballad of the Feeding Tube


Single-channel digital video, silent, color, 7 hours and 55 minutes.

When she was a few months old, my daughter was diagnosed with infantile anorexia and fed through a feeding tube for almost a year.
This durational piece is the transcription of the food diaries I kept from November 2002 to October 2003 in order to record my daughter’s daily formula and food intake, medications, reactions to them and her weight.
