1. Scatter, 2. Power (2005)

Scatter: Scatter was made in October 2005 as a response to the disasters of Hurricane Katrina and the US goverment's attempted relief effort. Phone videos of random childrens' toys and zoo imagery are projected onto forms made of housing insulation and ivory soap. Dimensions are variable.

Power: The competing, but frustrated "smoking guns" projected onto the distended bed in Power were filmed at the Linden Power Plant, in Linden, NJ. The anti-terror force detective who tracked me down for filming the power plant referred to it as the number two terrorist target in the New York metro area.

Full Description

Scatter: Scatter was made in October 2005 as a response to the disasters of Hurricane Katrina and the US goverment's attempted relief effort. Phone videos of random childrens' toys and zoo imagery are projected onto forms made of carved housing insulation coated with Ivory Soap. The videos record 10 seconds of moving image, and are a crude snapshot akin to the Polaroid.

Power: The competing, but frustrated "smoking guns" projected onto the distended bed in Power were filmed at the Linden Power Plant, in Linden, NJ. The anti-terror force detective who tracked me down for filming the power plant referred to it as the number two terrorist target in the New York metro area. The side mounted smokestacks shoot at one another, but their smoke inevitably curls upward toward the head of the bed, and not at the intended target. The smoke also is projected in reverse- swallowed by the stacks. The stacks are not synchronized but act arbitrarily toward each other.
