Tug

Amy Jenkins. Tug, 2005.

Description:
"Tug" is a 3-channel video installation symbolizing the tension and harmony within parenthood. A couple struggles at tug-of-war in a life-sized, diptych projection; between them is a wall-mounted monitor showing a toddler whose movements and emotions correspond to the rope pulled between the parents. What begins as a game, teeters in back and forth sparring, and turns to an all-out struggle to hold onto one’s rope-end.
