The Stepping Up and Going Under Method

The Stepping Up and Going Under Method: Video
0:54 min., SD video



The Stepping Up and Going Under Method is a single-channel video, a site-specific video installation and a series of photographs.

A woman and a man travel along an old factory assembly line. The track moves through a warehouse space littered with things stored in cardboard boxes. They approach a green ramp and the woman steps off the boat and walks up the ramp while the man lays down flat to continue underneath it. The soundtrack is a NASA recording of a rocket booster disengaging in space, reentering the Earth’s atmosphere and crashing into the ocean.
