Edge of the Woods 2009
two channel video & sound installation | 4 min. 36 sec. loop

Edge of the Woods is an imaginary place located within the elusive subjectivity of a young girl. The video re-appropriates fairy tales as the camera wanders through a lush forest exploring innocence, desire and loss. These familiar tales simultaneously interweave along with a double narrative suggesting mutability of character. The dog and girl become like a mirror image, shifting roles and sharing consciousness within this transitory landscape.
