'homogeneous, part I' tryptic wooden boxes with headphone based audio loops, prototype, 2017:
installation stills, shown at a september exhibition, Arts Letters & Numbers, NY, september 2017.
These wooden boxes are the prototype of a work focusing on the similarities and differences of eating disorders. A three part immersive installation using a combination of sensory manipulation, creating a light void space and audio tracks. The boxes are small in size to create a feeling of confinement and claustrophobia. Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder each have their own box. The audio tracks in each box reflect the experience of each condition. The work is designed to be experienced one box at a time. It is my hope that the boxes allow the audience to understand the constant pain of being consumed by concerns about the physical space you take up and how your perception of the self is consistently fluctuating.
The refined final work will see the placement of 3 steel boxes arranged much like the prototypes above, in a cold space. The use of steel will create hard sharp defined edges to the space and allow for maximum light reduction inside each box. I am hoping to begin my MFA in 2022 and have access to the facilities required to complete this work.
