BITUSA

BITUSA (we live in a box in a box in another box) is an installation that features sculpture, screen prints, video projection and sound. The audio is Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA, slowed down to be hardly recognizable. The video shows me writing onto a piece of glass that I am seated behind, writing "Born in the USA" over and over for the duration of the song. This video was projected onto a simplified-house-shaped screen that sat in the middle of the space. Surrounding the screen were various prints and sculptures that came from a year of reflecting on what it means to be simply born into a country, when boundaries are so superficial.
