Single-channel video installation
SD video, NTSC, color, 4:3, 30 min, loop,
Variable dimensions: drawings on tissue paper, table, towels, light
A site-specific installation for a two-room basement space.
1st room: drawings on sheets of tissue paper, light source in the background, sound of water.
2nd room: video projection under a water faucets mounded on the wall, sound of water, table with stacked towels, one used towel.
Because the video is a half-hour loop of washing hands under cold water, while being washed, hands appear more and more red due to the frostbites.
