Countdown, 2017, single-channel video installation.




In Countdown a flashing 3-digit numeric sequence continually revolves:

5 5 5 — 4 4 4 — 3 3 3 — 2 2 2 — 1 1 1.

The projected sequence forms a cyclical and modulated pattern that slowly drifts in-and-out
of sync over the span of five minutes (the 3-digital sequence is off-set @ 59, 60, & 61 beats
per minute). Anticipation and anxiety builds—and at the same time—a strange lulling or
numbness occurs. Will this eventually lead to a detonation or perhaps a launch of some
kind? On goes a rather pleasurable yet disorienting continuum.
