Collaboration with Jamie Jenkinson
8 Channel Video | 1 Channel Audio
8 seconds looped
Based on ideas contained in the Gestalt Principles of perceptions. 8 short video pieces are synced to loop exactly in time to a single piece of audio. The exact timing of the loops creates a relationship between the audio and each video monitor, accentuating the looping nature of the work, and creating the illusion that the sound heard is originating from whichever monitor is being focused on. This is intended to conflict with the audiences awareness that the same piece of audio cannot serve as the real accompanying sound to such a disparate collection of video images.
This disparity is accentuated by the arrangement of the monitors within the space, which do not allow more than one screen to be seen clearly at any one time.
