Taos, Pueblo, Looping


Single Channel Video, 04:55

In this work I am not blind folded and again use the hybrid dialectic of video camera and blind mans stick to trace out seven different sections of the Pueblo in Taos, New Mexico. This work is a seven-screen projection work. Each looped section is a memory loop and represents a strictly defined neural network. The blind mans stick represents in this case a kind of cultural blindness in our attempts to understand and know other cultures. The looping is consistent with a type of obsessive-compulsive knowing that reiterates that which we know over and over again leaving out what is beyond that knowing. It is in the space of the cultural unknown that the truth resides.
