To Change a Lightbulb
2017, HD video, 14 minutes, looped with sound
Stockpiles of burned-out lightbulbs are revived by various means. Broken, dangling filaments are coaxed (gently and otherwise) back into place, bridging the two electrodes and recompleting the circuit. In refusing to accept the finality of the disconnect, new ad-hoc techniques are improvised by the artist in pursuit of illumination.
