10-minute DVD loop, 2002
Endurance is a 10-minute excerpt from an archival film of Sir Ernest Shackleton's 1914 expedition to the South Pole on the ship Endurance, projected onto my front tooth. While the film plays, I try to smile without losing composure. This piece is exhibited as a large projection such that the image is at least eight feet wide (when shown at this scale, the film playing on the tooth is legible). My increasingly distressed breathing and the sound of my slurping mouth constitute the soundtrack.
