Timepass is a video installation which encourages viewers to engage individually in a somewhat meditative space. The simple loop features two semi-digital, semi-human objects in a gentle, repetitive motion. The contextualisation of these objects in a nondescript urban environment implies a sense of narrative, however the lack of the progression intends to be both enthralling and frustrating. Sitting on the verge of an event, the viewer is kept in anticipation of an explanation which never transpires, and yet can also lose themselves in the intimacy of the moment. Elements such as the hand made rug introduce a designated space to engage with the video, with the tactility encouraging viewers to fiddle and lose themselves in that interaction. Personally, this echoes the developing relationship we have with the screen, seen in the rise of 'ambient TV', whereby the content of a programme is subsumed by its ability to be passively watched.
