As Above, As Below was a two channel of video, “performed” installation that was executed in two stages. An installation set was created in the gallery, in which a video taped performance completed its creation, leaving the physical record of foot prints, a clay body imprint, drawings, etc. Two stacked monitors at the edge of the set played back the performance event, on the lower channel. Related performance scenes from a dry lake in Sheep Hole Mountains of the Mojave Desert appear in the upper monitor.
The alchemical precept implies, that which is above is reflected below. From above, an explorer excavates the encrusted, latent self below. Seen as a drama fluctuating between poles, from desert environment to stylized, geometric interior, the metaphor progresses to a fisherman plumbing the depths in search of a more holistic view of self.
The videos from As Above, As Below were subsequently made into a Single Channel video tape.
