99 Names - installation version

2002


MoMA, New York, USA, 2006

99 Names is a five screen projection with each projection consisting of a man sitting and rocking back and forth with his eyes closed. In each projection the man's position is different, turning slightly from right to left. His movement is very gentle in the first screen and gets faster, louder, and more violent until in the last projection he is shouting and beating his chest with both fists. The bottom of the first screen rests on the floor and each screen is elevated higher than the one before so the last one is highest as if he is taking off and flying.
