Meditation Mediation

Meditations

Meditation Mediation is a 2 channel video about one person’s search for identity within a media-saturated culture. I play a meditator seeking spiritual calm while simultaneously being bombarded by media images. With an awareness that our everyday display of identity is a performance, I try on different identities, refuting my own in the process. The left channel of the media influences and informs the right channel of the meditator. There is also a feeling of loss of previous modes and a sense of not being able to keep up with rapidly changing technology. In the end, I succumb like an addict wiping pixels onto my skin. My fully pixelated body fades out and crosses over to remain forever in the world of media escape.
