Tiny Deaths, 1993 Video/sound installation Edition 1: Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon, France.
Three large projections appear on the walls of a completely dark room. They exist at the threshold of perception, barely visible in the darkness. Human forms gradually emerge as dim silhouettes on a field of noise. Quiet, indecipherable voices are heard by each image. At random intervals, a light source slowly appears on
one of the figures, increasing until the illumination rapidly accelerates to suddenly consume the whole body in a burst of saturated white light. The peak light momentarily illuminates the room and washes out the other two projections. All returns abruptly to darkness until one of the other projected figures moves through the same transformation.
