Own This, 2013
HD Video, 9m 29s
Own This is a vignette featuring a floor-length fringed orange hat that’s reminiscent of a jellyfish; its swishing movements grace a menacing obstacle course of household objects.
The first iteration of this work was part of a performative video project depicting a series of abstracted spatial character vignettes that incorporate video, costume, music, and dance. Each segment of this series is the study of a shape or form that obscures, restricts or otherwise defines the body and the inter-relationship of its aural, emotive, and environmental components. The challenge that each character faces is played out on the screen and on the stage, in a minimal theatrical set that emphasizes the multi-place-ness and multi-space-ness in which we are located.
