In the video installation “Detritus,” a figure is crouched amidst the turbulence of demolition. Within the deteriorating urban landscape, the jaws of a crane grab at the body, stirring up clouds of dust and debris. The figure is occasionally obscured by haze, remaining unaware of the surrounding danger. Framed by a steel channel, the projected image extends downward into the floor, reflected in a mirror that runs its length. At the opposite end of the space piles of newspapers bearing the same images of destruction spill onto the floor, inviting viewers to participate by carrying the image away with them.

“Detritus,” the newspaper edition, is a sequence of images of repeated loss and destruction imbedded as news, unexplained. In collaboration with the Weekly Dig newspaper, the concept is based on the free dissemination of art and of news, blurring the distinction between the two and underscoring the power of free speech and expression.

Using the emotional landscape of the body to explore person and place, “Detritus” gives expression to the vulnerability and compassion that empowers the human spirit. As a public intervention Detritus functions as a shared visual memory of loss in the hopes of peace.

This peice runs in conjunction with Denise Markia's Detrius in the Weekly Dig: April 20, 2005
