Pile Up (2011) from Hong-An Truong on Vimeo.

"Pile Up"  (Day 5)

The body pile performance symbolized mainstream and creative labor. Within the pile, individuals are closely placed with one another: they have the option to accept the intimacy or attempt to block it. In struggling to exit the pile, others may act as counterweights or may choose to shift themselves to assist your escape. The process becomes a cycle. The performances had the capacity to be intimate or revealing. On camera, an extra impetus was added to perform the best sequence possible. The final videos were effective in the sense that they gave viewers an abstract venue to reflect on their ideas of labor.    –  Andrew Persoff
