Loops & Bonds
2009-2010 // 7 Minutes // 3 Channel Video
Loops & Bonds investigates the tension between the spontaneity and subliminal violence of the open-mic scenario and the fraternity, through the juxtaposition of immersive and chaotic images and sound against the austerity of menacing and suggestive performative actions. Evolving out of an exploration of metered utterance, rhythms collapse into frenzied and amorphous experiences—interrupted by the abrupt exposition of production and artifice. Functioning as an agent of connectivity and suture, the lasso and the rope transform to reveal the sinister psychological underpinnings of the event.
