video for installation, The Mourning Cage: Fear of Flight
This video is a collection of imagery relating to mourning and the fear of impermanence. It depicts how one can become trapped and continues to be caged by the two.
A sense of sorrow for what has passed is portrayed, and images flash like quick reminders of what is gone and cannot be repaired. The images represent memories that are painful and uncomfortable, yet cannot be forgotten.
Each represented memory suggests the mourning for the self that died and how one can become trapped in constant mourning by the fear of further loss. For this reason the video sequence is played continuously, and a twenty-four second segment that is devoid of any images punctuates each sequence.
