Grip, 2005
two-channel large-scale video projection, color, stereo sound, 6 minutes
Grip reveals the compelling and complex psychological tug – of – war as boys struggle with fear through the prism of athletic competition. This despair can lead to extreme expressions of anger and frustration at a time in their lives when perspective can often be elusive, and alludes to the startling and revealing analogous microcosm for life outside the demarcations and boundaries of the playing field.
