Presence/Absence
Video Installation Dimensions Variable
I use photography, video, and projection to create site-responsive installations that investigate the ontology of electronic images. My practice of exploring the qualities of the electronic image is a response to the technological changes within photography in the last 20 years, and the move from the print to virtual, screen based mediums. My current video installation utilises human-machine interaction to project computer generated silhouettes of the viewer’s body. The work explores how these shadow representations are predicated on their physical relationship to the material world, yet through projection, the image as index is transformed into illusion.
