WE'VE /WEAVE [2013/2017]
Mixed media installation: Single-channel digital video projection - 00:59:59 looped - Black-&-white - 4:3 | Other materials: ground quartz | installation dimensions: variable
WE'VE /WEAVE is a video installation that explores the materiality of analogue video and its relation to notions of perception and temporality. WE'VE /WEAVE employs 'video noise'—the random and constantly changing dot pattern of electromagnetic static—whose origins are in the stellar atmosphere. WE'VE /WEAVE reframes the 'video noise', visible as a random flicker of dots in perpetual movement, by isolating it through a series of delay mechanisms creating a ghost-like temporal pattern of looping afterimages. It creates a 'weave' of itself based on its previous position or electronic presence. This work seeks to engage with the fluid relationship between the materiality and perception of light as an expression of time. By considering light as a sensorial and symbolic material, this work engages haptically and tests the experiential and temporal parameters of the photographic through the video medium.
