Broken Record (1996)
Mirror, steel frame, record player, audio tape, light, slide projection, hospital beads, motion sensor, relay box.
In Broken Record, looking into the mirror activates a light bulb, turntable, and the sound of a 1950′s exercise record overlaid with conflicting voices of desire and questionable scientific expertise. Projections pass through the mirror, catching on the bulb like a hologram. Spinning around on the turntable are the following words: “The patient, a young woman, single, slender, mannish in appearance, came to analysis because of acute states of panic during which she claimed she felt paralyzed from the waist down and found it difficult at times to move her legs.”
