The installation is comprised of a video and a free-standing piece. It connects within the same space two distinct temporal points made thirty years apart, placing them into dialogue. The work suggests a temporal amalgam of disconnected fragments in time and focusses on chronicles of war as experienced through mainstream television broadcasting.
The video explores collisions and ruptures within visual narratives. Disruptions and discontinuities in the visual world, together with the products of mass and social media culture, all coalesce in a matrix of visual data, with a confusing blurring of meanings that oftentimes becomes indecipherable.
