performer stands in front of a video projector
with the projection hitting his naked torso.
The performer stands still; a circle containing
animated images of a skull is displayed on his
chest. His left hand rests below, palm up, as
though holding up the circle. A rotating 3D
human heart is projected onto the palm of his
right hand, which is held high as if giving
an oath. The audio track uses samples of Astrud
Gilberto in a DrumnBass rhythm,
reiterating the phrase Without You.
The projected skull animation was generated
from CAT scans and MRI scans of the artists
wifes head. The piece is both a lament
and a love song. The image of the dead wife
(skull) takes the place of the artists
heart, which now floats in front of the raised
right hand of the artist. Reminiscent of images
of the sacred heart, the artist mourns his imaginary
separation from his love, thereby reveling in
his current state.
