Work Statement

In Begin Again, Begin Again, Green filled a modernist structure, with layers of sound, video, text and photographs, the artist and MIT professor created a complex, three-dimensional poem intertwining the life and thought of the building’s architect and onetime resident, Rudolf M. Schindler, with her own. The inherently autobiographical works played with variables of time and location, space and things, amongst reflections on relays, delays, movement, exile, migration, displacement and reinvention. 

​Rather than compose a coherent story, what emerged was a highly personal constellation of moments that shed light on how we organize and make sense of the world.
