The mixed media work What being, with only one voice, has sometimes two feet, sometimes three, sometimes four, and is weakest when it has the most? consists of a sculptural installation with an integrated single channel video accompanied by an original recorded soundtrack. The piece represents a pivotal moment in my development, in which I’ve begun to directly incorporate my personal experiences as a father, former wrestler, and musician directly into both my subject matter and production strategies. The result is a complex combination of outwardly theatrical and subjective gestures that undulate with psychological uncertainty. Additionally, I’ve made a tête-à-tête bench for three, that is supported by cast hydrocal bull heads. The accompanying video and song I sing employing ‘augmented’ triad chords. The song and video is inspired by Pier Pasolini’s 1967 film, Oedipus Rex-- particularly Oedipus’s encounter with the Sphinx. “All notes at the Sphinx meeting reads as a “mise-en-scene”: an attempt to disavow the excessive knowledge of an ambiguous origin. First, Oedipus repeatedly attempts to divert from the road that leads to Thebes by artificially blinding himself but is unwittingly returned to it... When the Sphinx eventually poses the riddle, asking Oedipus, “What is the enigma of [his] life,” Oedipus desperately stabs her with his sword, replying, “I don’t want to know it; I don’t want to see it; I don’t want to hear it.” The Sphinx replies, “Thrusting your sword is useless because the real abyss is deep inside of you.” The Sphinx’s chilling laughter while dying reminds Oedipus of the uselessness of his actions as they bring neither relief nor victory.
