The "Gray Area" Series: Program 3

1993, 26:42 min, color, sound

Writes Baldino: "Initially inspired by the theories behind 'Fuzzy Logic,' this series reveals that opposites can be the same. Something is what it is and what it is not, simultaneously... All of the work is shot in the first take, without editing."

In these witty performance pieces, Baldino constructs, deconstructs or reconstructs objects to subvert their meaning and function. The objects simultaneously are and are not the objects indicated by their name, incapable of fulfilling the function they are designed to perform. For example, in Cheeseboard/Not Cheeseboard, she fashions a wineglass from a broken pencil, a funnel, and gaffer's tape. Often Baldino performs the assembly or disassembly of these everyday objects while wearing incongruous costumes or in incongruous contexts.
