Life is Good…

2010   Monitors, DVD players, DVD's, Audio   4 x 4 x 2 ft

This work was curated by Mireille Eagan as part of the group show, What Remains, at the Confederation Centre For The Arts in Charlottetown, P.E.I.

I used eight television monitors of various shape and size to create an anthropomorphic “mound” that seemed capable of collapsing at any given moment.  Extreme close-up video of blinking, twitching eyeballs in a continuous, quick loop plays on five of the monitors while the remaining three display mouths performing abstract movements.

Gospel instrumental music can be heard from audio speakers carefully installed beneath the mound.  The DVD players are double-stacked and extend away, tendril like, from the mounds base.
