Slowdive, 2016, single-channel video installation.
Slowdive showcases the anatomy of a video projection: a system (consisting of a projector, a video-
loop, a suspended 4 x 5’ rear-projection screen, and a gallery bench) operates in the center of the
gallery. One can sit on the bench and observe the spectacle projected onto the suspended screen, or
navigate the room and observe the system’s components.
The projection features a loop of unedited footage which has been generated from the recording
parameters of two digital recording devices (a cell phone camera, facedown on the glass of a flatbed
scanner has captured the passage of a 2400 dpi colour scan).
The installation forms a dialogue between everyday technology and the posthuman imaginary:
(...) from out of a vast darkness (...) slowly moving through layer upon layer of an alien atmosphere (...) towards
the apparition of a surface which gives way to a strobe of prismatic colours and dissolves into yet another
vacuumous black space (...)
