suddenly the silence had turned (2017)

5-channel video installation, silent, 3.5 min loop

suddenly the silence had turned utilizes multiple screens and staggered sequencing to create an undulating rhythm. The untrained dancer is literally flipped upside down to subvert the viewer’s perspective in order to uncover new forms and patterns of movement. The work turns the familiar body into an unexpected form through isolation, reverse motion, and offset timing. The work was initially edited to a musical soundtrack, which was then erased, creating rhythm through editing. suddenly the silence had turned is an experiment in screen dance that utilizes the architecture of PUPP to play with the layering of images and create a wave of motion. The image sequencing also switches from left to right and between forward motion and reverse motion to manipulate spatial and temporal orientation in order to further examine the flow between screens. The work utilizes very simple editing techniques to explore movements of the human body in a new and innovative way.

one channel video installation, frame

A work exploring the duality between the digital and the tangible. Two congruent frames at hand. A light slowly scans. A shadow steadily cast s.

The moving image forms ascending horizon lines and impressionistic landscapes. The adjacent frame remains still, while encapsulating the scanned object. We are left in the center. Pushing. Pulling. Contemplating object- hood in the current mediascape . This Line Has History uses light, balance, gradation, and abstraction to examine the role of material in the digital age.

slide projector installation

Ann Arbor Art Center, Intermission, March 2010

 

A slide projector installation composed of 80 images. Each slide derives from found vacuumated acetate filmstrip material. The work pays homage to the  lifespan of  celluloid;  highlighting the chemical breakdown of film, while celebrating the beauty of decay. The installation adopts certain exhibition/ viewing conventions of painting, yet counters stillness through the constant interchange of color and texture.

single channel video installation F*** You... I Love You , The Mockbee, Cincinnati, OH, November 2010

 

The work involves the cultural love/hate relation ship that society has with changing technologies. The simple heartbeat of the video represents the "life" of video technology as well as the lifespan of the machine it it shown on. The short clip was dubbed over and over using a VHS player and tapes. The image slowly disintegrates due to the generational loss caused by the dubbing process. The heart beat loses color and shape,

ultimately fracturing and disappearing.

Found slide projector images of a 1960's Hawaiian vacation superimpose archival maps of Detroit. As the maps slowly scroll in various directions, the tropical imagery overlaps the urban landscape. The work celebrates the Detroit art community.
