.you’re the one I’m thinking of.
Inspired by a 1920's player piano waltz entitled, “You’re the one I’m thinking of”, married with a visual interpretation of Caspar David Friedrich’s “The Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog” (1818), this piece is a depiction of a personal archetype of love, loss and mourning. In the video piece acting as a continuation of this performance, the figure stands on a cliff edge by the sea, leaning further and further into the wind, seemingly in perpetuity. The words of the waltz are twisted, dictated, damned and desperate. A meditation on the past and present self. In this performance, the figure walks around a circular room in sharp, weighted shoes made of plaster, carrying the burden of conscience and past regret. The recitation is a plea for forgiveness, an honest truth, a bearing of the soul. An attempt to walk the road to personal resolve.
