"Just Me and The Light" 11:25 min Loop, Digital Vídeo with Audio
While in quarantine in 2020, I was isolated in my studio in the Flatiron District, drinking myself to sleep. I built an installation that I lived in for 6 months constructed from plastic walls, filled with elements from previous projects - they were my company. Inside, I could escape my circumstances through the camera and visit other realities, loops, frames. I connected a VHS camera to a CRTV, recording on a mirrorless camera through a video circuit. Within this circuit, I could explore technological and personal aesthetics using my body as the vessel and subject, navigating alternatives. The nostalgic aspect from the circuit alludes to intense flashbacks I was experiencing about my early interplay with the camera and performance in the late 90’s - when I first started exploring ways to distort the reality around me through video practices. To cope with trauma, to accept my loneliness, my feelings are materialized through the image.
