2013, Mini Digital Video, 8 minutes, Colour, Silent

 

Shot over a number of months between 2011/2012, this video piece was created for an exhibition concerning the theme of repetition.  Set construction incorporated the commissioned build of an apparatus that would facilitate the tracing of a shadow in motion.  The apparatus was used to track a camera alongside the particular speed of progressing shadow, with the intention of synchronicity. A particular digital noise, a quality inherent to Mini Digital Video tape, was exploited to stimulate brainwave frequencies (Alpha and Beta) shifting from a normal waking state a relaxed wakefulness.  The final work is presented as a silent, unedited, single-take video capture.  The title is borrowed from Kurt Vonnegut’s short story "The Sirens of Titan".
