1997, 01:00 minutes, colour/B&W


The artist's face - teeth clenched bracing against the violent pounding of a self-loathing fist. Alternating frames display a masturbatory stroking fist. Video is paired with sounds of construction, machinery, and smashing. In this work I've attempted to test two techniques. First what you see is what you hear. The second is the use of sensational imagery without clear context. It is my belief that violence and sex assist memory.
