step by step (love)
video installation


this work attempts to reveal the very thin line dividing Love and Hate.
The installation consists of a continuous double video projection onto a cube, each projector covering 2 sides. The video is a short animation of a ritual fight/dance between two identical figures commented upon by a voice naming each point of contact between the 2 bodies.

elbow to elbow, head to head, heart to heart, genitals to genitals, anus to anus, and sole to sole

By moving around the cube the viewer can experience every possible combination of the Love/Hate discourse; a singular figure forever struggling with oneself, two figures coming towards each other and becoming one, two figures constantly avoiding each other.

Shown as a single screen projection in June 2000 for Rapid eye cinema in London
