Converge - an exhibit of video art
iAm - Video projection
Gallery 244, UMASS Dartmouth, New Bedford, MA
In the video work "iAm", the myth of narcissus is reenacted, further exploring the multiplicity and dimensionality of identity. The pool has woken. Reflections break free from the loop of hypnotic psycho-feedback. Artifacts surface from the depths, these totems of self bob up and down in the water, and later appear as ritual objects, protruding from the ears, and piercing the skin and skull. The initiation has begun, reflections have inverted, turning in on themselves in pursuit of their own evolution and transformation.
