Blue Velvet 7 Minutes in Heaven
installation, sculpture, performance, 2016.
Marking the 30th anniversary of David Lynch’s Blue Velvet. 7 minutes in heaven is my original installation and performance inspired by Dorothy Vallens and the American adolescent make out game of the same name. A stranger and I were in the dark for a minimum of 7 minutes what happens inside the “installation” for that time is a mystery. 7 hours a day for 7 days in the Apparatjik Suite of The Thief Hotel, Oslo, Norway.
AT&T, Direct TV describes “Dorothy Vallens” in David Lynch’s Blue Velvet as a “floozy nightclub singer.”
