Kinds of Caves and Wholes and Parts (single channel video)

A silent slideshow plays: claustrophobic digital collages of carpeted cat trees and a Russian Ragdoll named Tucker in a windowless Southern Ontario office.
Meanwhile, the artist is heard singing, a cappella, a combination of Desperado and La Vie en Rose (re-addressed to the feminine).
The singing is earnest and builds as the songs intertwine according to an interior harmonic logic.
There are allusions to carpet dream interpretations, such as:
Sometimes, colour speaks louder than objects
How will anyone know that you feel this way unless you tell them?

Originally created as a performance: commissioned for the 30th edition Images Festival as a tribute to artist Deirdre Logue.
