Video Cocoon 2.

Video Cocoon 2, Damaged VHS footage, latex, paint, CRT monitor, blankets, wire, rice paper

Sound: Disintigration Loops--William Basinski

I dropped my favorite mix tape recently, and the tape still played but the footage was damaged. The color was stripped, and the footage instantly degraded to look as though it had been playing for ten years. When I viewed the nearly unrecognizable footage, I began to play with the idea of creating immersive environments based on the viewing for a single piece. This cocoon, monitor, and tape now only exist for each other, and the tape will play until either the monitor or the tape stops working. This piece is a sketch for future environments I plan to create to house my video pieces.
