This Room, 2014 (in-progress)
Three-channel HD Video (to be looped)
'This Room' is based on the concept of a barnacle: an encrusted species, permanently attached.
An older woman feeds on what surrounds her. Personal archives are organized as a stockpile in the closet, centered around a focal object: the piano. She makes things. She counts seconds as she presses flowers, cataloguing the petals in the dictionary. Keeping time, everyday iteratives are woven with fragments of the past. All the while, the outside world eludes as she is anchored to the 11th floor.
