The Innermost Room video - segment
Recorded in Transylvania, Romania.
This video is part of a larger concept and installation based on the theme of HOME. I traveled back home (to Romania, Transylvania) and visited a small village. I asked if I can set up a table and break bread in one of the 'clean rooms' traditionally reserved for storing and displaying valuable hand made objects. This room, frozen in time, became my performance space and the basis for the Installation Art piece.
This video is a painting in motion, a simple project about passing of time. I am interested in the 'seductive' image of the seemingly dirty hand and its' story.
Untitled - is an adaptation of the film Misery - by Stephen King.
This video is an adaptation of the movie Misery. I was interested in the main character of the film and her role as the twisted 'muse' of the author, Paul Sheldon. I imagine the painful creative process this writer goes through is similar to other artists' struggles to create so I removed the 'evil woman' character from the film and replaced her with a ghost like figure that can not literally hurt the author during the writing process. In this version of the Misery, the author has to write in silence, and his struggles are internal, with a ghostlike figure as a witness.
