BIG SIN LITTLE SIN (2002)


BIG SIN LITTLE SIN
(running time 1 minute)


With BIG SIN LITTLE SIN I explore the subjective nature of sin, how it is defined and who does the defining, logically concluding that sin , big or small, is a matter of individual perspective.

For the sound component, I entered into a real catholic confessional posing as a guilty defense department employee and secretly recorded my exchange with the priest. I couldn't have scripted a better response than this priest's paranoid conception of what sin is not.

BIG SIN LITTLE SIN was created as part of an exquisite corpse video project involving 13 New York area artists. The project, which revolves around the theme of peccadillos, or little sins, was presented in its entirety during the MOOVInternational Media Arts Festival which will be held at White Box in NYC on June 15, 2002
