Shoulderpieces (2012)

Fixed Media and Video (quad)

Duration: 7 minutes
Composed: 2012 (CECM)

The generating idea behind this piece stems from an anthropomorphic vein, but in more of an 'under the microscope' kind of way. We are so accustomed to seeing and understanding our bodies from the very few points of view that our perception allows us, that it's almost impossible for us to even conceptualize the tiny microbes that really do live on our bodies. With this project I am imposing the imaginary "transmorphations" on the human body that are completely impossible in reality, but because of the similarities between the curve of a neck and a mountain slope, or between the shape of the shoulders deltoid muscle and a cliff, or the bristle of a mustache and a birds nest.
