"Dessert" is an ongoing video series based on the re-configuration of mass produced sweets. I capture the deconstruction and reconstruction of the objects on video. The result is a life-like personality that reveals itself through how it changes and repeats this change over and over again.
The videos have a direct correlation to painting and sculpture. For me they exist in a middle space between mediums. Through their patterns, each object gains behaviors or abstract functions that are uniquely their own. They become both strange and familiar at the same time. Starting from something commonly known and through transformation becoming something unknown.The videos are either shown alone or in conjunction. Depending on the presentation a different perspective is gained. How each piece appears alone differs from how it appears in community.
