Becoming
Multi-media installation
50 x 60 cm (painting)

Presented as a temporary piece of work which resulted from an investigation into the limitations of the visual image, this voyeuristic, multi-media installation experimented with different categories of still and moving images. 

The incorporation of hidden cameras around the painting provided several live streams which where then displayed within the second and third phases of the installation, including a four monitor display set-up following the projection of a building. The video streams were not recorded, but each set with a different delay that allowed viewers to observe themselves as they appeared across four screens and afterwards, walking the rooms of a large building (projecion) they had never truly stepped foot inside. Based on a number of interviews, the experience prompted viewers to distinguish between embodied experience and its abstraction through image whilst sensing a level of detachment with oneself.
