PROJECTS > IN YOUR ABSENCE THE SKIES ARE ALL THE SAME
In Your Absence the Skies Are All the Same is a large-scale installation that consists of two channels of synchronized video, a mirrored wall, and four channels of audio. The visuals of In Your Absence are footage of 40 skies from cities around the world. The imagery is accompanied by quadraphonic sound featuring thirteen versions of the American classic, I'm Gonna Make You Love Me, reconfigured and remixed. Each element (the visual projections and the two separate audio tracks) varies in length and will phase throughout the course of the exhibition, offering viewers a unique and singular experience at each visit. In Your Absence investigates the cognitive dissonance of obsession, sappiness, erasure, kitsch, and the sublime in conventional notions of love.
