Synopsis: “Historically, the discourse of absence is carried on by the Woman: Woman is sedentary, man hunts, journeys; Woman is faithful (she waits), man is fickle (he sails away, he cruises). It is woman who gives shape to absence, elaborates its fiction, for she has time to do so.” - Roland Barthes, A Lover’s Discourse (1979)

"This and other works are discussed in a published research paper for New Media Caucus, that outlines my networked screen/ moving image work" - ME
