In March of 2014, I created three film installation pieces for Hub-Bub's Artist-In-Residence Midway Show. Installed in the kitchen of a vacant restaurant, they represent my interest in exploring the intersection of recorded video and living spaces.
Untitled (bed and clouds)
Installed in a small side room, presumably once an office, is a large bed, dresser and domestic decorative elements (fresh sunflowers, loose change, a burning candle). Projected against the opposite wall is a series of slow-moving shots of rolling clouds, filmed locally in Spartanburg.
Participants are invited to recline in bed and place one of two headphones over their ears, which plays white-noise on a continuous loop.
Participants are encouraged to fall asleep while watching.
In a large room of hundreds of individually-lit tea candles, a projector is placed at the precipice of a basin of water with a mirror at the bottom, which is tilted to reflect the image back onto a reversed white board.
The video consists of extreme close-ups of skin.
Above the basin are two cups filled with water, suspended by string.
Drops fall at unexpected intervals, rippling the mirror and, by extension, the images.
A ghost story in an abandoned cotton warehouse. Originally presented in an industrial freezer on a cathode ray television, surrounded by tea candles on either side of the television.
Beneath the television rest items stolen from the location where Clearance was filmed.
