This piece consists of two parts: a star bedazzled paper-bag sculpture with a peephole on the top, and this continuously looping video animation. The music is "The Sound of Violence" (slowed down) by Cassius, "When You Coming Out" by Dinosaur Feathers, and "Pretty Woman" by Roy Orbison.
Chest - a beating heart, a rhythmic breathing, an anxious suffocation, a comforting warmth, an absolute love. I completed this video using some characters and objects that I had created for a performance piece that I did (Frog Slippers and my Buffalo Heart). I'd say this is an offshoot/borderline continuation of that performance. The melding of characters, bodies, and a relationship is the crux of this video, with the juxtaposition of imagery creating a surreal puzzle that slips in and out of coherence.
