Necessary Assembly
single channel video

Artist Statement:
"Necessary Assembly is about picturing the idea of more.  I was thinking about consumption, accumulation, desire, survival, necessity, and how to create an image of them.  The video begins with a single shelf structure on a wall, into which a thing is placed.  Over time, the structure is haphazardly extended to accommodate more things as they become a growing collection.  The video operates somewhere between a how-to guide, a performance, a document, and a poem."
