In 2004 I dreamt I stood in a dark building 5.30 pm one dark cloudy winter day. I opened the sliding door, running out, finding myself instantly on a street full of houses. I was looking for everyone. When I found them, all my family and friends, at a party in one of the houses all warmly lit up and much celebration of some kind, I tried to talk to them but none of them noticed me. They could not see me.
This year, I stood in my newly-built home one cloudy wintry day at 5.30 pm in dark; the scene eerily familiar. The streets, 2 minutes from my home were familiar. I realised I had seen my future 2019 in 2004!
It makes me realise we can see our futures, or check in with our pasts to resolve our current presence in this life. It has helped me resolve some social issues I have faced. Social issues such as isolation, being Deaf in a hearing world and silence, the time and space that is spread out over the universe and our lives play a role in this space that is current.
This work is a video installation to be shown on a television or projected on the wall (depending on the venue, this installation is very flexible). This video is Video 1 of Time Travel series and I'm currently working on part 2 for next year. This is the first and I would love to show it in Italy and bring a sense of feeling and intrigue to the audience, to leave them wondering and looking forward to the next video installment which would be shown in different galleries.
