Middle East (The Further Back I Look The Further Forward I Can See)

 

Two Channel video sculpturally contextualized by two pedestals and a chair which “encourages” the viewer to sit facing the Western view.  Shot simultaneously, the eastern screen depicts the rising sun viewed through a 2 inch hole bored in the foot thick wall of the artist’s studio while the western view is across the Hudson River as the moon is setting.  The hole in the eastern wall evokes a feeling of shrapnel and the damage of warfare, while the monitor depicting the western view lies on its side.
