Steel, aluminum, cotton, nylon, and single channel rear-projection video loop, 20 min., Dimensions Variable
Undergrowth consists of a video loop projected onto an angled, curved screen. The imagery is of an unsteady, lurching movement through a meadow looking skyward. The rhythmic wash of traffic noise is synchronized with the movements in the video. References to aquatic, terrestrial, and mechanistic environments are mediated by electronic reproduction and offer an immersive experience for the viewer. I am interested in the various environmental realms we inhabit- (our mind, the physical body, the natural and built environments, time) and how these interact/overlap and affect each other. Undergrowth is an exploration of our conscious experience of these environments.
