WHAT'S ON THE WALL?

Evan Meaney

CEIBAS: TO HOLD A FUTURE BODY SO CLOSE TO ONE'S OWN

Iowa-based media artist Evan Meaney's 2008 video installation, inspired by the Mayan myth of the Ceibas tree, is comprised of moving image portraits of people in various states of transition. As Meaney intervenes in the digital files, the portraits become corrupted, glitched, and broken, ultimately raising questions of allegory and impermanence.
