Installation: Video Cocoon 1

Wax paper, aluminum wire, fishing line, wood planks, pillows, three projectors, dried leaves.

I’ve had a lot of anxiety about moving to a new part of the country over the last few months. I still feel very displaced. I wanted to create a space to remove myself from my often harsh and uncomfortable surroundings. I spent some time thinking about isolation tanks, and really considering the idea of introducing video into the space, as a kind of immersive video/color therapy. The video piece is a study of light and color, with a loose visual narrative about launching into space. It is accompanied by a live prepared guitar soundtrack.
