The Kiss, 2007
2 Channel DVD sculpture: 15 minute loop, colour, silent, 55" x 22" x 14"
Part of the Glow Video Series in which I use television content, in this case a hard core porn movie, as a simple source material for reflected light installations.
The light source for this work was created by simply recording the cast light of a gang bang scene in a hard core porn film as it bathed my apartment wall while viewing. No image or sound was captured only the reflected light. The porn genre tends to be fairly routine and pragmatic in terms of editing, therefore the resulting glow is steady and rhythmic with few camera changes but with quickening pulses of colour...mainly pinks, oranges and red hues.
