PURITY, SANCTITY AND CORPOREALITY


Video is projected into three Renaissance-like frames. One actor is used to portray Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary of various racial configurations.  With this piece I am interested in the idea of “purity” and how people are questioning its relationship to whiteness and the white body.

Video of a silhouetted figure is projected on the floor inside of a tire. Water washes over the image that only briefly goes away but then comes back again. Sound and music from a celebration in Jamaica are in the background.

SNOW WHITE REMIXED
Video of my niece posing for the camera dressed as Snow White and slowly applying make up.  The video is projected into the frame of a mirror and a platform with a chair is set up in front to invite users to experience the piece as if they were looking into a mirror.

ESCAPE

Video of clouds from Jamaica, NYC and Utica are projected onto the windows and floor of the space. Every now and then a shadow of a bird is seen flying from the projection of the floor to the window and then back to the floor.
