AN ACT FOR ONE STRING

2018, HD video 15:15 minutes.

This video performance features my attempt to unravel a tangle of thread. Only my hands with the black thread are visible, against a white background. Like much of my work, this explores the line as a vantage point for the infinite. The line is at once a measurable distance between points, and a mere portion of an infinite extension out into space. The work engages with our human longing to resolve the infinite; to touch on truth and understanding, to balance dissonance with harmony, to reconcile our finite lives and our place in the universe, to find order and resolve chaos.
