TOURIST ATTRACTIONS SERIES
Flights video piece was inspired by Michel Foucaults’s History of Sexuality, where he explains how being gay was considered a “symptom” in the past. I like Foucauit’s work because it emphasizes how dialogue can change internal and external lives. The idea for this video piece came to me when I was browsing through Hogarth’s prints, one depicting an 18th century asylum visit. I imagined a different character in the image.
