Temporal Distortion Machine
This work consists of a movie projector showing films on an old suitcase. The sound of the motor of the running projector resonates through the dresser it is sitting on. A microphone in placed in a drawer of the dresser. This audio signal is sent to a mixer that runs to a home stereo system. The way the equipment is set up creates a feed back loop that produces a haunting soundtrack for the tableau. The rear two feet ate propped up with library book that is brown with black binding; the spine of the book is printed with gold lettering spelling out the title Fragile Objects. Tucked in the pages of this book as if marking a saved space is a fortune from a Chinese fortune cookie that reads, “ An upward initiated in time can counteract fate”.
