SE Barnet | "Snow
Music for Polystyrene", 2002
In this three part projection installation a single clip
of video of a woman's walk in the snow, becomes a meditation on the nature
of repetition. The hypnotic series of looped audio and video sequences
present variations on the restlessness of movement and the stasis of the
loop. The video loops are sculpturally integrated with Styrofoam elements,
both found and fabricated, reflecting a negative space "filler"
elevated in importance. Intricate manipulations of this figure in isolation
plays out a singular dance, lost in projections on surfaces broken with
physical interruptions, or imprisoned in the confinement of miniature
theatrical spaces. This work is about the figurative ability to move forward
while lost in the fascination and compunction of repetition.
