The Bud, the Seed, the Egg 15:00, Color, Stereo, US, 2008
This video interrogates and restages the fragmented nature of human subjectivity through diverse scenes of comedic performance. The artist’s body appears in this artwork as a pile of rubble composed of clips, segments, and quotations that perform on camera in short bursts of dialogue, action or sculpture. The Internet has created access routes to a flood of media that I channel through various screens and filter into my work as references, homage, transformations, and appropriations. The vaudevillian juxtaposition of fragmentary elements culled from the world of images creates a visual and textual metaphor for the nature of human existence in the face of overwhelming information.
