Ghost Algebra


Digital video (shot on 16mm film); 7:30 minutes (2009)

Sound Collage : Janie Geiser
Sound Mix: Kari Rae Seekins

Under erratic skies, a solitary figure navigates a landscape of constructed nature and broken bones.  She peers through a decaying aperture, waiting and watching: the fragility of the body is exposed for what it is: ephemeral, liquid, a battlefield of nervous dreams.

Using found and natural objects, rephotographed video, medical illustrations, and other collage elements, Ghost Algebra suggests one of the original meanings of the word “algebra”: the science of restoring what is missing, the reunion of broken parts. “
