Seamlessly incorporating live and processed imagery, electronic, and acoustic music, the work references Bernini's highly theatrical sculpture the Ecstasy of St. Theresa, Brando's death scene form Apocalypse Now, and the rantings of a drunk and enraged Mel Gibson. the horror the horror conjures a slowed down realm of breathing, watching, and dreaming, a world of literal and internal reflection, using multiple large scale video projections, surround sound audio, escalating feedback, live cameras and a dancer to spin a gothic meditation on American pop culture and the personal obsessions of madmen.‚Äč

Curtains!, 2010

multiple channel video, audio, performance installation, duration variable
