Video projection on sculpture. 30″ tall, bottom is 36″ from the floor
An audio of scientists discussing cosmology and the big bang is juxtaposed with three interrelated visual tracks. The wax throat shows a stream of text naming the beings, or state of being, that were there in the beginning according to various creation myths. In the center, short magic tricks involving unexpected appearances and disappearances, and one flying figure, are seen on the scarf held aloft by gloved hands. And below, on the stomach, a figure floats in water, occasionally buoyed by mathematical formulae and birds.
