Artist Statement:


    Nothing broke but the Heart: This work compulsively, hypnotically, runs through distorted icons of “love”, heart always “center screen”. A chaos of color and light, individual frames flash like memories. These hearts – hearts of stone, burning hearts, wooden hearts, “mutated” hearts, hearts that are only words – are punctuated throughout the video by medical images of my body’s real heart – breathing, pumping, catching in its rhythm. This video uses the hardness, the rationality of electronic technology and its processes – the antithesis of emotion – as the language with which to express emotion.

     

    Music: Carmina Burana by Carl Orff
