Shifting States; 2018
This performance and video piece navigates through two complexities; capture and display. At a base level it’s about re-activating objects that have been turned, in a sense, virtual by returning them to a state of physicality. Each character reinforces the others to maintain their fixed state. As you will see the human role is an essential component to shifting these states.
Other themes include: surveillance, power, control, alchemy, technology
