Project Description

Video Series (2014)

Our world is filled with moments where hope, fear and confusion collide. In these videos, individuals use compact cameras, helmetcams and camera phones in an unselfconscious attempt to capture what is happening around them. The dizzying images shudder and tear apart as these digital devices struggle to compress and record massive amounts of visual information. When this information is reflected upon itself, a frenetic and complex vision of a World folding and unfolding upon itself is revealed.
