GET A GRIP, 2009, three channel video installation
When no body's watching I'm a perfect example of a person (6:54)
Get Instituted (6:31)
Get Motivated (3:34)

GET A GRIP is a video trilogy set in three different institutional spaces: a cinderblock closet, a storage room, and an empty boardroom. Actress Paula Taylor performs a variety of activities with everyday objects. She tends to her archives, calculates her future, and self-regulates. This project also stars a long handle that’s been cast in foam. Purchased from a health care catalog that offers products to home-bound adults, this easy-install handle is ultimately as fragile as the body its meant to support.  Camera: Anthony Rhoads and Zach Powell
