The illusion is clear - transparent,
as objects perform, melt and then reform,
stretching time from one side of the room to the other.
Finding a language in the thickness of it all
my body peeks through itself,
blurring the lens between
inner monologue and a line from a film I forgot I watched.
Your gaze is held in collaged light, projected -
a pool of images pulled
from indeterminate forms
that clot in collective memory
and crystalise on the screen.
This work explores the sculptural capacities of the moving image by distorting the self through object-based performance, combined with the camera's ability to condense space and time.
Systems of transformation are revealed.
Processes of perception are interrogated:
How do we negotiate the space that connects our gaze, the projected image, and its material reality?
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung people of the Kulin Nations, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
