Darling Child

Tom Kalin. 1993. United States of America. vo English. 2’

Kalin's short video works function both as visual poems and as alternative music videos. With their astute conjunctions of image, music and text, these works respond to issues of sexuality and human interaction in the 1990s.

In Darling Child, Kalin uses an economy of means — spare visuals of an interior space, minimalist music — to create an evocative interpretation of a text by Truman Capote.
