Tin Top

8 pairs of archival digital prints; 8 companion HD videos
Tin Top I (persist); Tin Top II (rest).

I made these works with the impulse to highlight the interplay between the adventure of creation and the routine activity of simply passing the time. As if being-in-the-moment is too factual a predicament of/for being. These works describe my preoccupation with the performance of time, space and chance.
