Jumped Out

David Askevold

1985, 12:00 minutes, English


This tape is comprised of a sensual drift of images which allude to or trace evidence of psychic energy that surfaces within the image. The tape begins with a tableau of architectural stone to a saxophone player (Charlie Braden, a musician from Minneapolis) who is playing through a 34 foot elevated rectangular tube wood structure. The intention was to support a "physical sound track." The piece then moves to an outdoor garden restaurant setting during the credits, where a mental patient speaks of various subjects, shifting the emphasis away from the previous content.
