Simulate is a video installation that presents a recording of a performance that is partially concealed by a mirror that has patterns incised through its reflective surface.  This mirror is positioned over a video monitor that is embedded in a wall.  The video documents a performer touching and caressing their chest and nipples. This work was produced during an artist residency at the Albert Gleizes Foundation, Sablon, France. The original title of this work was Poitrine (meaning chest in English) Please see documentation from the Albert Gleizes Foundation (click here).
