Heaven and Earth, 1992 Video installation link
Artist's Proof: Collection of the artist. Two wood columns extend from floor to ceiling, separated by a gap of several inches. At this gap, the exposed tubes of two black and white video monitors are positioned facing each other and not touching. The upper monitor shows an image of an old woman's face on the verge of death, and the lower monitor shows the face of a new baby only days old. The images are silent and the entire structure is enclosed in a small room. Since the surface of each monitor screen is glass, the reflection of the image on the opposing screen can be seen through the surface of each image, with the birth-face and death-face reflecting and containing each other.
