this table is sad because no one is sitting at it – time based film for projection

“I find myself repeatedly passing through my life without actually engaging with it, going through the motions but my mind elsewhere. When I am lost in my inner thoughts those inhabiting the outer world around me disappear, and I too cease to exist. My awareness of this state creates a duality of experience through which I struggle to re-engage with the present.”

Created using every day colour films and high street developing labs, this projection series employs a twin lens photographic technique to record a parallax effect that forces a continual re-evaluation of the everyday transitory moment.

‘this table is sad because no one is sitting at it’ is intended for exhibition both as a large scale projection and an intimate book.
