FLY IN A JAR ON A WIRE is a 5:57 minute video projection with sound. It depicts a high-wire act in which a novice wirewalker is caught on a length of wire confined by the picture frame. While the performer should feel free and in control, trapped like a fly in a sealed jar, she kicks and bangs at the edges unable to escape. Never reaching the end of the wire and never returning to the beginning, she is suspended in an unrelenting predicament. The sound component reflects her struggle at the edges of her confinement.
