BURNING THE CANDLE



Dimensions: 2 8" x 12" monitors in a pile of clothing 4' in diameter
Unplugged alarm clock and a half eaten bowl of Hot and Sour soup
and broken alarm clock suspended from the ceiling

This was a site-specific corner video installation. This video installation is a two monitor
installation with 10 minute looping videos and a soundtrack created of found-soundand original music.
The video was mixed in an image processing video suite designed in part by Matthew Schlanger
and was created in the first six months of my arrival in New York and it's pace and finding time to do simple
necessities such as laundry and eating a meal. The image of multiple alarm clock radios and alarms sounding
in the first movement of the piece. The second movement of the video is a candle burning at both ends with a
luminance key of drawn images burned into the dark background of the two-ended candle. In the third movement
I smash a single white alarm clock (stopping the measurement of time to overcome it's constraints).
The video loops continuously during the installation.

BURNING THE CANDLE was a site specific installation
The video/sound loop is available on DVD and CD
Stills of the video are also avaialble
