tread lightly my dear

before it breaks
video installation at the prairie center, september 2012
video length: 2 minutes 9 seconds
stop motion video projection, altered fans, steel armature, sewn paper, and audio.

the video is the deinstallation of imaginary love, installed during my residency at the prairie center in the fall of 2011.
this is the first public viewing of before it breaks. the video is composed from 302 stills photographed on my last day here.
this is how i would like to remember that day.
