Embed - object, live feed video, projection, 2015


A portion of a bed is suspended two feet off the floor and affixed to a wall.  This abbreviated physical object is paired with a projected image of the audience’s body that is captured in another part of the gallery.  The mapped projection only shows a portion of the audience’s body on this disassociated intimate setting of the bed.  The suspended object and the live feed video both have characteristics of a dream in that they are illogical and not all together within one’s control.  The subjects are not able to see their own projected image.  They must rely on other audience member’s willingness be subjected to this capture in order to view the pairing of object and person.
