String (Not Infinite)  (2015)

In this installation, I projected video onto a 35+ year-old spool of string that I turned into a speaker, so the audio emits from the string rather than from within it or from elsewhere in the installation space. The string spoke to the viewer asking questions and antagonizing while also speaking towards itself, as the hands projected onto it alternated between unraveling string, to "holding" the edges of the spool. This piece plays on ideas of time vs infinity, destruction vs deterioration, and the anxiety caused by our conception of the future.
