burn-in portraits(3 years, 10 months, 2 days)

Acrylic case, CRT monitor 16 x 7 x 7 inches

On a shelf is a small cathode ray tube monitor, lit from within and bearing the image of the artist's face. There is no actual video of the artist's face playing; this is just the result of having played a video of his face so continuously on this screen—for 3 years, 10 months, and 2 days, according to the piece's title—that it burned onto the screen. The subject is twice-departed; it's strangely touching.
