Spit and Plastic
The viewer is accosted by my face and fluids in a two minute video. I create a relationship between myself, technology, and the viewer in which I intimately confront and offer myself to someone who must willingly participate. By addressing bodily fluid through visuals and sounds, I illicit repulsive responses. Through watching actions, deemed disgusting, thrown directly toward the camera, the viewer is met with the conflict of choice. The repeated cuts and edits in the video allude to the discomfort a viewer feels when watching someone spit towards the screen. The difficulty to lock eyes to the screen is inherent to the piece. I relate an individual’s afflictions towards their own bodily fluids through their reaction to those that violently escape me.
