Original software and video projected into installation consisting of hung plastic and mirrored wall
Private Residence
New York, NY
November 2005

I arranged transparent and translucent plastics in a large, raw space with a single mirrored wall. During the same timeframe, I shot video of the physical installation being created, and apparently unrelated clips while exploring the city with a video camera. Subsequently, the footage was edited and dynamically montaged with original software. This resulting video was projected into the installation, where it reflected off of the plastic and the mirror.

When i look around, I see things that don't necessarily go together. My twenty-first century computer sits on a desk which could have existed hundreds or thousands of years ago; one wall is brick, adjacent to that plaster; there is a tape measure and a microphone in front of me right now. The footage I shot, of making the installation and wandering around, trying to think of what would go with it - it might not make any sense - but juxtaposition, I think, is the natural order (or lack thereof) of things - so I just let my instinctual impulses pull me whichever way.
