X/701085 (2009)

Presented in two pieces. One piece is a video played on a monitor. This is placed in front of and to the side of the second piece; a large scale projection of the same video offering an image five feet in width. Both videos are looped. The video shows the glass door of an industrial microwave oven with reflection of the laborarory visible. Behind the door, a turntable with locked compartments housing the hair is seen turning first in one direction and then the reverse direction as the machine systematically breaks down the hair. The audio of ambient sound has a cheerful, light tone, its rhythm and timing accentuates the visual back and forth movement of the video.The persistent to and fro references the continual inscription and resistance contained within the work of Foucault.
