ABOVE: Still from BENCH, intersection of GRAND and WOOSTER, MANHATTAN NYC JULY 2008. I chose this as a still because it shares in one frame the public gaze ( as embodied in the driver ) and a reflection on the surface of the car of my video capture and mobility apparatus.
While I was editing a new version of my 2008 video and performance work "Bench" today I realized I might want to share more what is happening in my creative work even if it is a small thing. This BENCH piece I have featured here previously and have installed as an "in-the-round" work. Now I am recreating an HD single screen composite of the video. I want this edit to be seen especially as it includes a new landscape arrangement of the six channels that pulls all the screens in one continuous line. I enjoy this aspect of the video because it ties together front and rear more intuitively. This work may be included in a museum group show which I will not disclose yet until confirmed. Its deadline time.
ABOVE: Still from BENCH, 7th Ave.South of Houston, MANHATTAN NYC JULY 2008. I chose this as a still because it shares the randomness of encounters in the street. In this image a skateboarder in a business jacket carrying a brief case rolls by me as I am skating and says " Sweet Dude" and skates off. It is an hilarious moment because I am skating with a suitcase between my legs full of cameras and I happen upon another skater carrying a suitcase. The odds of that are very thin I would imagine. Truth in coincidence is stranger than fiction.
