Scary Things 2
2006, Sculptural video installation with flat-screen display.
Scary Things is made of images of the simple elements of nature that can be frightening to children. This sculpture (like Special Things) uses the technique of tiny cameras, sculptural miniatures, and acrylic text in one integrated platform. Although the sculpture contains only ten words, hundreds of sentences are created by a software-based video sequencer, forming a poetry of fear which sets image against text: "Dogs are fighting scary things" or "Lost birds are scary".
