Installation - Meditations on a Roller Set

Three channel video installation, 2006

This work is part of the larger “Parlor Project” and this clip an excerpt of varying views of this three channel video installation. The work was installed in a large and enclosed darkened space, with three large projections and their accompanying sound (each distinct, and heard when standing in front of each screen).

The looping video that appears on each screen references a different stage in the “roller set” - the washing, drying and styling of the hair - a style that was maintained and then refreshed on a weekly basis. I was so captivated by aspects of touch, tenderness and the intimacy revealed in what some might consider a rather mundane process.
