Blue Blood 2009
Single Channel DV
Blue Blood is a two part video piece consisting of an exterior projection and an interior installation
Through the flow of fluids life is transfered and sustained.We are in effect a self contained river moving even when sitting perfectly still.
The illusion of seeing blue blood flowing just underneath the skin is in a sense a metaphor for the hope, in our supposedly classless society, for the potential for upward mobility .
We shun royalty and all of its pure or blue blood inclinations although wealth and privilege are passed from one generation to the next as are concepts of religion and faith .
