UNDER WATER (2013)
TRT 5:05

Named after the euphemistic phrase for owing more on your house than it is worth, this video takes a literal approach to that terminology in its treatment of these images from foreclosed real estate listings. Each house is printed on an inkjet printer and sprayed with water until the ink starts to run. The resultant water damage also references the aftermath of natural disasters.

Under Water had its premiere as part of a larger installation in the multi-venued exhibition Memphis Social in May, 2013.
