   "Jollies" is the best of her work (that I've seen); "It Wasn't Love" is
another.
   Her tapes are technologically interesting: a Mattel kiddycam (very low
resolution, VERY heavily underscanned), edited in the camera (Avid doesn't
handle kiddycam  routinely), bumped up to a usable format (somehow).
Remarkable what intelligence and patience can do.  ("Broadcast Quality"?!!
We don't need no stinking "broadcast quality"!!)
