SEGMENT: Ann Hamilton in "Spirituality"

Now Playing: SEGMENT: Ann Hamilton in "Spirituality"

About this video

Whether working with sculpture, textiles, film, and sound, or even her unique mouth-operated pinhole cameras, Ann Hamilton finds all her art to be about a "very fundamental act of making." "When I'm making work," she says, "there's a point where I can't see it. And then there's that moment where you can see it—it's like it bites you—and you think it might be beautiful." Filmed on location in Lexington, Virginia, where she is in the process of a new installation "ghost: a border act," the segment travels with Hamilton to her home in Columbus, Ohio, where she is shown experimenting with bubbles that stretch from floor to ceiling.
