RUNG
 

2017

I wanted to work on a piece addressing domestic violence and thought it would be timely to have it coincide with Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. I focused my research on New York City and found this startling statistic: In New York City in 2016, 91,617 intimate partner violence reports were filed—an average of one every 5 minutes and 44 seconds. I built RUNG as a meditation on private space vs public space, what is hidden and what is revealed. It was constructed from black veil, water, metal bowl, sound and light. An increasingly urgent sound of a phone ringing inside the installation loops according to the duration of time between each incident filed.
