I let go.
site, video, and sound installation

My graduate thesis was an installation room integrating text, space, structure, sound, and video. The inspiration for the room was the image of a tandem-rotor helicopter (a military vehicle) above a city (a civilian area): a scene both fascinating and frightening. The helicopter was chosen for its powerful, engaging sound, and because it is a system reliant upon opposing forces: helicopters require at least two rotors because with only one, the cabin would constantly rotate.

I likened the system to the human struggles against and compulsions for freedom and convention/rules. Thus the installation utilized dualities and the grayness between them: the clearly delineated lines of the room vs. the outside space, two panels with two vantage points yet mirrored interiors, two spinning rotors, circling vs. moving between the panels, a sense of being on the ground while being in the air.
