Summer MFA Installation
Attempting to unravel or even eliminate meaning and definition. Undoing meaning. Meaninglessness.
Three videos seen below were projected onto a cylindrical screen. The videos could be viewed from both the interior and exterior of the cylindrical screen. Audio was provided on headphones for each of the three videos. The videos overlapped providing 360 degrees of possible video.
Each video was a composition of further layered videos in varying transparencies.
There were also balloon shaped sculptures ('nonsense balloons') suspended in the space.
There were eight or maybe twelve 'nonsense balloons' in total.
Using a random word generator, I chose approximately 32 words
(approximately 8 groups of 4)
Each word was used to generate a google image search.
In groups of approximately 4, the images were layered in equal transparency to create vague abstractions.
These abstractions were transferred to gel medium, cut up, and sewn back together in the shape of miniature hot balloons.
Each balloon was paired with an audio title:
recording my voice reading each of the 4 words aloud, I then layered the audios in equal transparencies both forward and backwards
creating jumbled sounds.
These jumbled sounds were the titles for the nonsense balloons.
