Dutch MacDonald

Stream

2002

This installation explores the practice of video and the possibilities of the three-dimensional.

This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Dutch Macdonald is a principal in the firm of Edge Architects. This installation, however, explores the practice of video and the possibilities of the three-dimensional. The movement of water, the filmed documentation of Macdonald's own travels, and a carefully modulated sound track create a compelling and beautiful environment.
