2015

This work consists of a single video screen mounted inside a metal frame, with a small piece of black electrical tape dangling from the top. The screen displays an animation of a simple cube interacting with a virtual continuation of the tape. Like children whose play has gone stale and seek out a fight, or lovers whose attraction fades to boredom and then outright hostility, the cube and tape our characters whose relationship is laid bare.  The cube jostles the tape, first gently but then with increasing spite until the tape is torn.  But the tape is renewed and gets its chance at revenge, rolling the cube this way and that, then finally sending it spinning off screen. The animation repeats indefinitely, as do so many cycles of injury and retaliation in the world.

Memo
Russia, 1939. A state run by terror. A population in despair.
But even in darkness threads of light are visible, in paper and ink.

Russian Voodoo
What will you do when you hold a life in your hands?
Cruelty that’s casual is the most disturbing of all.

Root
Each life coalesces in layers and has a story to be told if you can find it.
We make our own memories, ring by ring, until the day comes when we,
too, are uprooted.

100 Pieces
It’s not too difficult to generate the generic: just follow the recipe,
sprinkle a bit of this or that, and you can cook up whatever
you want.

Towers
A cycle of construction and deconstruction, repeating ad infinitum,
that produces towers like melodies in a set of musical variations.

Masturbator
A voyeur’s fantasy shimmers into view, but to be a witness here you must also be a culprit.
A true hands-on experience…

No fowl play here… just a little rustic charm pecking in the urban grit.

Survival of the Fittest
Just because you climb the corporate ladder from the inside,
instead of scaling the walls from without, doesn’t mean
you’re any less of a beast.

Center of the Universe
Each of us is at the center of our own life, but when the universe
is infinite does it matter?

Cycle of Revenge
Push past silent comfort zones and playfulness unravels into cruelty.
Payback takes on a life of its own, ceaselessly feeding upon itself.
