Artist Statement:


    19″ video monitors were placed behind 2 pre-existing utility closets, separated by a 4-door glass entrance. Beginning behind the left closet door (monitor), a female body seemingly trapped in an enclosed container under water appears on the video screen. Struggling in search for an escape, she suddenly reappeared behind the right closet door (monitor) — giving the illusion she has traveled throughout the open space of the glass-pane doors. As she continues traveling back and forth, passersby enter the lobby. The frantic figure captures their peripheral consciousness—temporarily interrupting their mundane routine.
