Ways to be Immortal

2006, DVD, 9 minutes 17 seconds

This messy homemade documentary video of the killing of a fly and its larvae takes place in the artist's dingy bathroom. Divided into three segments and partially scored by the inquiries of the artist's young son, this piece uses cruelty and humor in a look at birth, life, and power over death that is all at once disgusting, morbid and delightful.

DVDs available for $20

Artist Notes:

I shot this piece a couple of years ago. I knew I had something but I didn't know what.
