TIERRA SIN MALES PRINT IMAGE 1


"Tierra Sin Males" is a spinning, spiraling, fracturing 
video piecewhich 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/disequilibriumprecarious location and 
dislocation, extending questions in a physical 
and possible world.
