TWO CANS AND A PIECE OF STRING
"Two Cans and a Piece of String" is about myself performing in different locations in front of the camera trying to illuminate the denim swatches. The denim used was once worn and been tailored to fit, then thrown into the trash, fading and disintegrating away like dust. I wanted to give these unwanted pieces of material another life, a new purpose by performing with them within each frame.
The images produced resemble semaphore, a coded form of communication, with swatches of denim operating as a flag to communicate a message.
I am trying to communicate a message to the viewer by performing a visual text which is partially hidden. The viewer is invited to dissect my work as if it were a body, to uncover what is below.
