observer (Hive Mind) (2018)

5 min3 channel installation / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Observer is one of three video channels from Hive Mind, an installation originally presented at the Engine Room, Wellington, 2018.

Watch the remaining two channels the word became flesh and we are the gods of our own universe.

Hive Mind was developed through a conversation in images between Laura Duffy and Maddy Plimmer, facilitated by Sean Burn.

"Our perception is limited by a stream of electrical impulses. Our brain is the receptor of information which categorises experiences based on prior learning. We do not passively perceive, we actively generate. Can we understand something if it is framed by nothing? What is nothing?"
