Esther Williams, Eat Your Heart Out

by Jennifer Dunning

The New York Times, June 2004

A brief article that focuses on the ideas behind Laurie McLeod’s video installation Waterhaven No. 1 (Luo Yong’s Dream), an underwater film based on a 45-year-old Chinese man’s dream in both literal and conceptual direction. “There is a poetic form of privacy there that is simultaneously intimate and enigmatic. Underwater, the camera picks up minutiae of expression and intention. It’s as if the subject’s unconscious gets revealed.”
