MERGE [2014]​

Single-channel digital video  | 02:00 - looped | Colour | Stereo | 4:3


MERGE is inspired by Michelangelo Antonioni’s film Blow Up, and focuses on the video screen as the site (or space) of convergence between the viewer and the image. This work suggests that within the screen itself there exists a potential for representation to shift, misalign and reveal something that disrupts the image’s innate visual logic. Like in Antonioni’s film, individual still frames are enlarged on the screen in a seemingly endless loop which oscillates between what is recognizable ('figurative') to what is not ('abstract'). MERGE asks the viewer to focus on the enigmatic visual spaces that emerge in this process.
