Blow Bolt

"BLOW BOLT" 

Two-channel video and sound installation

 A woman is seen blowing furiously and energetically at a huge mound of coal. Her effort is underscored by the sound layer, a looped recording of a TV commentary from the 200 meters’ race where Usain Bolt was declared the world's fastest man. The combined sound and video layers address the Sisyphean feat of constantly running in circles, but also the intensity and strength it inheres.
