Pinch Point, 2 channel HD video, 2023.
Inspired by the OVHCloud Data Center fire in Strasbourg in 2021, Pinch Point
is a 2-channel video work that re-imagines the incident from the perspective of Sage,
a fictitious blue-collar employee working nights at the facility.
Part free-association and part confessional, Sage recounts experiences
from her private life over public domain footage of a US defense program
in her namesake (Semi Automatic Ground Environment) that reminds us
of the military-industrial cosmogony of Silicon Valley.
