Over My Head

/Title of Work/ "Over My Head"
/Medium/ Video
/Date/ 2006

Obsessive hope and tenacious futility as embodied in a physically repetitive drawing performance.

For five minutes, I repeatedly leapt up to a piece of paper hung very high on a wall, over my head. In between each jump I added more charcoal to my hand, creating a drawing which evolves over time.
