This is video is an exploration of an analogy about the molecular landscape of the human body.
Our body is made largely of protein, complex molecular machines that begin as a simple linked chain. they take their final structure by wrapping up upon themselves in order to release a kind of tension or energy stored in hundreds of small electrical charges.
In this video I add tension to a thin cotton rope by twisting from one end. with enough tension higher order structures form spontaneously. the shape and movement of the rope has a remarkably organic and sinister quality.

My piece "Rainy Night" was selected for the 2009 All Media Exhibition at the Ann Arbor Art Center (on liberty and main st.) Thanks for joining me at the opening. ~ Also, I have four pieces on display at the 4th Avenue Gallery. Check them out any Friday night from 6-10 pm. Free music and refreshments, too. Located at 210 S. Fourth Avenue.
Not entirely sorted and somewhat organized by theme, this gallery is here if you are curious to see some more recent experiments or work while traveling in Europe during the spring of 2003 (the good old days).
