(From the Flintridge Fellowship Catalog)"Fate, a 1994 collaboration with filmmaker Kristy Edmunds, dealt with life-changing events, taking the Holocaust as a focus. At the heart of this installation was the diary of D'Agostino's husband's grandfather, in which the family's experience of Kristallnacht was described. The diary, veiled in wax, was placed on a stand-up writing desk beside a wax-covered suitcase,an arrangement mutely expressive of fear and flight,and of the human urge to bear witness to "lifes most terrible moments."
