Mimi Cabell – I Love You

I Love You

In the video piece “I Love You”, I repeat the phrase “I love you” without pause for nine minutes. I am a character that oscillates between a child and an adult, male and female, desperate and ruminative. At times the character is speaking to someone, at others it speaks to itself. The repetition is as much a question as it is a statement.

Mimi Cabell was born in Nanaimo, B.C., Canada. She earned her BFA in photography from Ryerson University in Toronto, CA, and her MFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. She is currently enrolled in the Electronic Writing MFA Program at Brown University where she is working with images, text and sound. Her work has been shown in Providence, Toronto and New York, most recently at Interrupt II, a festival of performance and literature in digital media, at Brown University in Providence, RI. In June and July 2012 she will read/show at &Now; in Paris, and CGiV in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
