Channelbone: Video
2:04 min., SD video



Channelbone is a single-channel video, a site-specific video installation and a series of photographs.

Two people play dominoes on a stage in an Eisenhower-era auditorium. When the curtain opens, a group of American war veterans with spinal cord injuries pull helium balloons across the stage. Two people tango on top of the balloons, while two other people erase a chalkboard. The soundtrack is Paloma Negra by Tango Lorca.

The choreography and installation was based on interviews with these veterans.
