TIERRA SIN MALES PRINT IMAGE 1



"Tierra Sin Males" is a spinning, spiraling, fracturing video piece
which moves both with and against expectations or known laws 
of physics. A large glass globe rolls tensely back and forth on a 
track over a central fulcrum.  Embedded within the sphere is an 
image which may call forth numerous references, Attic, Etruscan ... 
but is in fact the reflection of a highway sign near the Mexico/US 
border warning drivers not to hit immigrants as they flee across the 
road, surely one of the most disturbing images of our times.  It rolls 
up, catching slightly over the edge, contorts, distorts.

The piece is digitally generated.  Within the context of a room, the 
object and shadows move, shift.  They spin, hit, spin back faster, 
hesitate, pivot, continue.  The piece is accompanied by a deep 
reverberating sound track, the sounds taken from the real world.  
In revolving tension, the piece hovers in equilibrium/disequilibrium
precarious location and dislocation, extending questions in a 
physical and possible world.
