John

Video and Sound Installation
1998

“John” explores myths and norms around the subject of masculinity. By creating alternative‚ more vulnerable depictions of the male body and corresponding psychological state‚ it challenges traditional representations of the male experience.

Installation Description: “John” is a single channel video and sound installation consisting of a nude man who slowly scrolls down a film scale movie screen, starting with his feet and ending with his head. The size of the body‚ in relation to the screen‚ only allows for small portions of the body to be seen at any onetime. As the video progresses the installation space is filled with sounds of breathing that slowly increases in volume and tempo.
