Stains
Animation Video Installation, 8 minutes looped, sound, 2002
   
   
  Body fluids, secretions , mucous, ooze, bubble and stain living tissue. These morph into humans that act ambiguously toward each other: loving, hating, killing each other. Finally the mass of bones that remain form a pair of bloody hands that seem to almost come together but instead a bomb pops out from between the palms and explodes. The death ooze bubbles out and is evacuated.  
   
   
 

A single cell animation constructed with accretions and erasures marking the trajectory of life and death pulling in the vagaries of the human psyche.

A huge latex breast filled with milk hangs pendulously in the middle of a room. The milk receives the projection. The viewer steps upto the rim to look inside.
