"Rebel Dabble Babble is a complex installation and video projection work originally inspired by both Nicholas Ray's 1955 classic Hollywood film 'Rebel Without a Cause' and the furious rumors that swirled around the off-set relationships between its director and his stars James Dean, Nathalie Wood, and Sal Mineo. This densely layered opus confronts definitions of power and role-playing, and expands far beyond references to the 1955 movie and related legends. Ultimately, Rebel Dabble Babble is an expansive meditation upon the archetypes and Oedipal tensions that define family dynamics as they have been played out in private homes, in the evolution of art history, and in the development of the entertainment industry." --Publisher's website.
