Pull of Burden Waters

 

Shown in collaboration with the video Lily Does Derrida: A Dog’s Video Essay, about the demise of a pet dog by drowning. This glass sculpture and LCD screen shows underwater views of a lake, experienced while swimming through the weeds. The sound of a dog barking is heard underwater as a muffled cry.

A sample of lake water is gathered in a glass vessel with a custom made puckered mouth. The opening of the vessel announces the splash of a camera’s perspective as it falls into Burden Lake capturing a unique perspective of a drowning body. At once lyrical and sad, this perspective is projected up through the water using a tiny lcd screen positioned under the suspended vessel.
