HOPE CHEST
(2008)

 

Sculpture, mirror and video loop. Silent.

Bringing to mind global flows of population, cargo and currents, Hope Chest is a WWI Naval Seaman’s trunk containing an optical illusion; a paradoxically distant view of the constantly retreating sea can only be glimpsed by the viewer through a slit hidden behind one of its handles.
