Splitting (The) Difference

splitting (the) difference included a sound component of edited heartbeats and blood circulation collected from stethoscope microphone from intimate relationships, and then remade into a unified heartbeat. Contained within the installation was a performance artifact/element, which included my writings and reflections, and fears on the future of the North that were burned and bottled into glass specimen vials to address absence/presence found with remains and trace. This constellation of fragments examined relationships between land, space, people, and spirit, as embedded within Indigenous Northern cosmology. 

As the title suggests, splitting (the) difference, refers to an illusion of displacement and disconnection, our tendency to believe that we can extract parts without affecting the whole. Referencing the liminal (in-between), this installation activates a waypoint, conveying concepts of potential transformation and hybridity.
