2000 | Single-Channel Video Installation with Cibachrome

Come Hither

Come Hither is a multimedia installation which utilizes video, proximity sensors and "blurred" voices to lure viewers closer to a small 3" screen. The work is coupled with a large 56x48" Cibachrome close up of an octopus tentacle that illustrates the flesh of the creature in repulsive detail. The overall effect is one which attracts the viewer to the video but which requires them to move closer toward the portrait of the looming cephalopod.
