Part I of a possible series
Where Do You Want To Go Today?
Viewers were asked to talk to sit with the camera and imagine or state where they'd like to go. Some viewers chose to be silent and act out where they'd like to go. Others provided monologues. The installation consisted of instructions on the door, a camera in the middle of the room, and the green screen. Nothing further has been done with the footage, and may just serve as a one time or repeated installation as a sense of false reality.
This is Not Trash or Red Paint Piece II
This is Not For Stepping On or Red Paint Piece II
Placed dried red paint puddle on the floor of the lobby along with its can on the opposite side of the lobby. This piece has been tampered with, the can has been stolen and the paint has been stepped on. Reminding me again that people have no respect for art or not a high enough intellect to realize that certain objects are there for a reason. Minimalist and conceptual art exists, not just paintings on wall.
These images are taken from (my first) a performance where I pour water onto a bouquet of fake roses in a kitchen. I continuously look at my watch as though I am waiting for someone or something and say, "Our Love Will Never Die" with each pour. Gradually I grow upset and eventually throw the cup of water on the ground.
