The surface of things (text only, 1 channel of 3)


The Surface of Things is a three-channel video work made while the artist was resident at Headlands Centre for the Arts, California, USA in 2015. In five sections, the scrolling text channel describes the accumulated traces on the studio floor left by previous residents; the artefacts of a local military base, now seen as objects of tourist fascination and boredom; and the inefficiency of maps to describe people, animals and activity.

1 channel from a 3 channel video work, looped with sound, monitors, chairs. Installation dimensions variable
