Video Installation

Shot from a camera attached to a blowpipe, this video installation provides an intimate perspective of the physical acts of manual tedium that comprise the practice of blowing glass. The act of "turning" a pipe is foregrounded as the primary means of counteracting gravity—an activity as fundamental as breathing in the practice of glassblowing. Viewers have the opportunity to experience the action of turning a pipe in response to the video with their own bodies, which, in turn, alters the projected image, creating an analogous feedback loop.
