They are neither properly “structural” or “objective,” or generically “poetic.” They combine both modes, lyrical and descriptive, through their structural formal approach to personally charged recorded material.

Grâce à un traitement structurel ils combinent les deux modes – lyrique et descriptif – avec un investissement personnel dans le matériau filmé. Adam Szymczyk 44 / Editions

[Nelson’s] first experimental collages created in the late sixties seem to be moved by a wild state of mind. She “tinkers”; the images and sounds are made up of many related fragments that follow a very personal system of signification. Familial, social or cultural daily life becomes the concrete material of her explorative work. Julie Savelli

Les premiers collages expérimentaux réalisés à la fin des années soixante, semblent animés par une forme sauvage de la pensée. Elle « bricole » : les images, les sons sont autant de fragments disparates mis en dialogue selon un système personnel de signification. Ce quotidien, qu’il soit familial, social ou culturel, devient le matériau concret d’un travail exploratoire. Julie Savelli
