“Of the origins of In the Mind’s Eye (1977) she (Tamara Krikorian) wrote:
“I thought about ways of approaching formalism through some sort of restricted narrative, and I used Rimbald’s poem ‘In Winter’ [describing a railway journey] as the structure of the work, while retaining obvious self-referral devices…concerned with the perception of video/TV per se.’
We hear her read the poem in French, then see first the changing view form a train window; then its re-played image on a TV monitor; then (remarkably) its image reflected in her eye.”
