“In Trapped and Frozen Forever 1, A large HD video projection is juxtaposed with a large collage (7 x13 feet). An image of the young girl from the film Poltergeist is repeated in the foreground of both the still and moving images, as a maelstrom of cultural material encircles her. The electronic version of the girl attempts to reach out and connect with the physical version, and vice versa. One version is infinitely trapped inside an ephemeral, ever-changing space, while the other is frozen forever in the realms of the physical.”
