Transitions, 2016 (45s Preview)
The video work ‘Transitions’ documents my daily journey and is recorded through one day entire day from climbing out of bed to returning to sleep.
The work represents an act of mindfulness, attending to the constant change of environment capturing every change of space (moving from one space to another) or surface under foot, and explores my interest in our physical relationship and interaction with our architectural environment. The process requires my constant attention, focusing my mind and awareness and captures the narrative of that attention. The chronologically presented clips, captured using a mobile phone, highlight the ever present eye of digital media and questions this often criticised source of distraction and how we perceive our relationship with technology, each other and our surroundings.

Transitions was originally created as part of an installation for the Resistant Forces exhibition at OVADA (Oxfordshire Visual Arts Development Agency) in January 2016. The work was shown with three lightbox images (see blog post) and explored the tension between our desire to strive and our need to be present.
The work premiered as a solo piece at CICA Experimental Film Festival (Korea) in August 2016 and is available for exhibition. Viewing a full version of the work can be made available by arrangement.
