Single-channel digital video 4/3 silent, color, 7 hours and 55 minutes.

Durational piece consisting of the transcription of food diaries I kept from Nov. 2002 to Oct. 2003 while recording my daughter’s daily formula and food intake, reactions to it, medications and her weight. For a year, starting when she was three months old, she was  fed through a feeding tube after being diagnosed with infantile anorexia.
