    Spin Off…

  • Spin Off is one segment from a video trilogy that investigates struggle in relation to contemporary art, art history and popular culture. Each video in the trilogy uses the visual qualities of 1980’s video games as a platform to look at our fascination with observing human struggle; in particular struggle that is fictional and without consequence. Spin Off presents a character who grapples with a spinning dumbbell as she tries to navigate through a Plinko-like world of teeter totters. The dumbbell appropriates the optical pattern utilized by Marcel Duchamp in his sculpture, Rotary Demisphere from 1925.
