Eat Your Heart Out
Stemming from my concerns of how meaning is made in our contemporary culture, this video installation (meant to be viewed in the round) establishes a familiar experience while creating a palpable sense of withholding - separate individuals trying to communicate with other separate individuals; speaking but not being heard. Voices are removed and the sole audible sounds are of dinning room table activities. Oversaturated love songs are exploited as subtitles that infer meaning. This piece specifically highlights our basic human desire to understand and to be understood.Eat Your Heart Out runs on a simultaneous long loop - the segments below offer 3 minute individuated clips.This piece was screened at Temple Contemporary in 2012.
