Eclipse

Eclipse (2008) is shot entirely in close-up from a bird’s eye view, with a suffocating proximity to the performer.  Lying in the dirt, she squirms and rolls as if with fever, while light dances across her body.  At times she falls passive as a disembodied hand lifts dry, autumn leaves from her chest.  Throughout, the video creates a disturbing sense of disorientation, as the source of light and the intrusive hand are unidentified.
