THINKING ABOUT EXPANSION (2003)
Video Installation

A video, audio and text installation that explores different possibilities of expansion both domestic and feral. Thinking About Expansion consists of 4 videos, a plastic mirror column, and text on the walls. All of the videos expose a different way of expansion. One video is projected onto a wall, two more are displayed on 13 inches TV monitors, and three in three 5” x 7” LCD monitors. The videos depict landscapes, houses, rooms and the people that inhabit them. A column made out of plastic mirrors with no structural function is placed in between the two existing columns in the gallery: same size, same shape, different materials.  Audio, from each one of the videos, comes out of the column. Text on the wall sets up a loose narrative, a kind of call and response. The text reads on one wall “THINKING ABOUT EXPANSION” and on the other wall “EXTENDED FONT HELVETICA EXTENDED NEUE 53”.
