22min looped laser disc, projector, velvet 2000

A modest, dark space houses the projection which fills one wall with larger-than-life images. The parallel wall is covered in orange velvet, allowing the viewer to locate oneself through touch in the darkness. Images of plums being peeled are intermittently dispersed with the construction of mellon balls. The newly exposed plum flesh loses its roundness while the cantaloupe interior transforms into spherical forms. The audio is the actual sounds, manipulated.
