Description
Summary:This multi-channel video project attempts to amplify questions about the psychological interplay between the subject depicted, the site of performance, and how the work unfolds in interaction with the viewer. By working in the space between the real and the imagined; the familiar and the unknown, an ambiguous other emerges. The work investigates a different type of rhythm - one that un-notices the seemingly normal everyday act, whilst drawing out the psychic dimensions that surround it. By amplifying this rhythm through a heightened filmic environment, the work aims for a moment of varying perspectives: a moment that continuously fails to arrive or cohere but is in an ongoing state of formation and exchange. This on-going tease or promise of unity and/or stability attempts to question the way the subject-viewer constructs a perspective of normalcy within the mundane.
