Ehrlich Residence, Venice, CA
Natural Causes was created in collaboration with video artist Joan Perlman. This environmental installation explored the dichotomies of culture and nature, the wild and the tame, risk and safety, and natural and unnatural states of being. Video projections of moving water were displayed on the walls of the home’s interior space to create an immersive environment during the dance performance. These multilayered images of flux and flow transformed the structure, with a focus on the unique geometry of Nancy Griffin and architect Steven Ehrlich’s home.
