ABOUT THE WORK

Video, Light and Sound Installation projected into a suspended 2 Meter perspex tube, which illuminates the tube in the room.

“Monument” is a video, sound and light installation consisting of projected visuals distorted through a tube, transmitting a clear, circular projection onto its adjacent wall. The auditory experience contrasts and layers the obscurity of the visuals by adding a narrative element through field recorded soundscapes. On the floor, beneath the tube lies a small futon-style, single bed on which the audience is encouraged to lie. This format of a video installation challenges the conventions of viewing
film. It highlights its physicality through the presence of the objectified tube that exists in the middle of the space. The bed allows for a more personal point of engagement within a public realm wherein the public also views the person viewing, who becomes part of what is being viewed. This speaks to the relationship between public and personal spaces and how one digests transmitted information publicly and privately.“Monument” is a video, sound and light installation consisting of projected visuals distorted through a tube, transmitting a clear, circular projection onto its adjacent wall.
