Bedroom Waltz

Bedroom Waltz

Amy Jenkins. Bedroom Waltz , 2011.

Description:
"Bedroom Waltz," a work-in-progress, is an animation of a bed slowly spinning to the music box tune “Honeymoon Waltz” as it unmakes itself down to bare bedposts. One by one, discarded possessions begin to rain down onto the bed. A chair, a crib, clothing, holiday decorations and random keepsakes--the stuff of attics--build on the bed into a precarious mound. From the possibility of romance to the inevitable accumulation of domestic excesses, the bed and its plethora signify the history of living. "Bedroom Waltz" will be wall-projected the scale of an actual bed, in high-definition. The animation will evolve over several hours.
