Oh My (2014)

A video installation exploring degradation, and abandonment. I was influenced by Jean Genet, who uses symbolism in his writing to describe something that is both beautiful and horrid, and contradictions, such as “the ecstasy of betrayal”. Martin Heidegger wrote that an abandonment of the self, the cause of the “distress of lack of distress”, is the truth of one’s existence. Exploring mediums and creating a space of internal monologue.
