Tom

 

(2012)
Dimensions Variable
Video Projection

 

A Tom & Jerry cartoon is re-edited frame by frame to remove Jerry from the cartoon. What’s left is a video about a paranoid, violent cat running manically through the house.

 

Created by the artist upon returning back to New York after having lived in Dubai for the last 5 years. The work is a tongue-in-cheek take on the creative process and artist needs to take, as well as a satirical look at American politics.
