'Emasculation': DVD (02m14s), March 2008


Emasculation is a video work created as a reaction to a button. The button was from a military jacket with the American National emblem embossed on it. I felt the emblem with the eagle and the stars was very masculine and overwhelming. I wanted to emasculate and subtract the dominant aspect from the image.  I decided the best way to do that would be to juxtapose it with/against banal boring everyday images. The banal images were found at random and were juxtaposed with each other with no deliberate narrative intent. Any political references within the work is purely incidental.
