Shaking/ Smiling, 2018

 Multimedia Installation; 8:51" Looped

Vinyl, Video Projection, No Audio  


The video image of three pairs of feet tapping nervously is projected onto vinyl. The image is treated in a way that speeds and slows the movements in a smooth and seamless manner. The video is overexposed and the brand new, white, Converse shoes appear white-hot.

The wooden form plays on the image of a homemade jump ramp--made popular in the 1970's for skateboard use in the suburbs, and an essential icon of the subculture.

The faux-wooden form becomes a mirroring of surfaces, appearances, and tensions that melt off the wall and onto the gallery floor.
