PULP FICTION (New York)

In my ongoing series “Personas”, Iʼve chosen film moments to which I have a particularly strong and visceral reaction, and into which I wish to project myself. The poetic and metaphoric content of three-dimensional objects are put in the service of this encounter between the author/viewer and a movie character. In orchestrating film, object, and sound, I can create a site in which a movie scene can once again become immediate. The viewer, unable to avoid the projection, inextricably becomes a vital element in the artwork and must engage directly with the artist’s dilemma of desire and identity.
