My Left Arm

Single Channel Video (Color, 8 mins 24 secs w/sound)  2001

My Left Arm explores the psychological state of the artist and the city in the days following the 9/11 attack upon the World Trade Center after a minor but bloody injury sends him to the emergency room for stitches.  Foregoing any actual shots of ground zero MLA instead focuses upon surreal and poetic imagery that obliquely references the devastation just a few blocks away juxtaposed against a close scrutiny of the bandaged left arm of the artist.
