Video Projection and Sound Installation
Dimensions Vary, 40’x 4’x 10′
A video and sound installation inspired by the artist’s great aunt who, at age 84, revealed in a letter that she was gay. An actress was hired to read the text. The recording is accompanied by a projection of a silhouette of a empty rocking chair moving back and forth. Both appear in a long narrow hallway pierced by a ray of blue light, a fitting backdrop for a story of self-liberation, recollected from an era when doing so held far greater risk than it does today.
