X: The Stool
The Stool, 1989/2015
Photo triptych from digital image and VHS home video still
The Stool has been with me all my life. I had often climbed into the stool oriented upside-down as a child, pretending I was The Wizard of Oz floating over Kansas in his balloon, journeying off to Oz. As an adult, my efforts to journey across lands that don't exist have become remarkably more complex in thought, and infinitely more impossible.
