FLOCK : 3-channel video installation
Formally, I have manipulated the video to introduce decay and aberration into the video files. This gives degraded image in the playback, intentionally. This process is a metaphorical approach to the process of memory, of mental information storage.
Artist statement :
A friend of mine asked me what meditation was like. She could not imagine witnessing the process of her own mind at work.
FLOCK : a poetic expression of recursive thought and its relationship to memory.
The architecture of memory altered by perspective, by the passage of time. We reshape things to suit a point of view. We forget, we reconstruct.
A video camera perched in a window recorded a flock of pigeons patterned flight. A handheld camera captured their behavior from the back yard.
No information is static.
The finished work loops like the birds' own behavior.
