Homewrecker#1 is a one-minute film loop, in which a woman enacts a forceful gaze. A 16mm black and white film sequence is shot in such a manner that the space around the woman appears to contract and expand - alluding to the electrically charged environment. Homewrecker#2 is a ghost-like levitation produced through an electro magnetic sculpture. Paulette Phillips is interested in the history of electricity and the flow of currents and how it is related to human behaviour and the phenomena of human attraction.
