Cuckoo, 2010

  • Odds n Ends
  • Video Sculpture

“Cuckoo” is “video architecture:” a miniature stage on which domestic activities unfold for the viewer through customized video projection and placement. A birdhouse becomes an apartment as its occupants struggle to co-exist in the small space. “Cuckoo” is both a TV sitcom, where a series of absurd activities emerge from the structure in a clock-like fashion, and a comment on the public and private aspects of a domestic relationship.

Mixed media: birdhouse, DVD movie w/audio, DVD player, video projector on table, approx. overall dimensions 60 x 60 x 96 inches. This piece uses the architecture of a birdhouse to explore domestic life and strife.
