With this large abstract video installation I reflect on my sister’s life. Video made from a circle of lights—a wheel, an eye, a flower, the sun—I conjure what could have been. Cables braided and connected to the custom electronics that play the video, which is a series of colors with jump cuts between.
My slightly older sister was raped at 13. She had a very difficult life and OD’d at 38. I made this work to mark her memory. Altering the video frame into a hand built 8’ circle of colors from video bouncing off the black wall.
I’m teasing apart video as a medium, pixel by pixel. Bending the the rectangle, which is driven by patriarchy. I removed the figure, and focus on the materials of color, light, form in honor of my sisters life.
