self-portrait in alterNation between descension & ascension
Synopsis: An installation/time-loop format self-portrait of the artist on the Brooklyn library escalator. In this playful, serious & surreal altered-time self-portrait, the escalator and the simple act of taking steps are abstracted to become symbolic of spiritual movement, imposed/colonial notions, and relationship to technology. Created for a gallery/exhibition setting, to be played endlessly on a wall mounted flatscreen. Can also be screened as a short single channel, festival format work.
