Xmas Tree

1999, 3:34 min, color, sound

During the winter holidays in New York, Park Avenue is lined with trees dressed in white lights. Hodel wraps her body with the same white lights and her superimposed image appears between and atop the trees. The artist's body is allied with the calculated decoration of an urban setting.

Performer: Ursula Hodel. Camera: Andrea Staka and Ursula Hodel. Soundtrack: Stephen Vitiello. Video editing and compositing: Alex Noyes, Mercer Media, Inc.
