Wendy Richmond Rocks TVs (2013)
Wendy Richmond Rocks TVs is an installation of eighty short videos playing
on approximately twenty old TVs. The videos show a character of
unknown identity kicking down, sweeping away and picking apart the
plethora of rock sculptures – some elaborate and labor-intensive, some
slap-dash and trivial – that visitors have built on the rocky coast of Maine.
How do we come to know a place of beauty? How do we make it a lasting
memory? Some of us mark our stay by building. I chose, instead, to clear away.
