The Love Beyond The Chair//
"We were talking- about the space between us all
Finding parallels between 60's communal subcultures and incorporating music from the era, the work appropriates lyrics and sound from "Within You, Without You", by The Beatles and locates a new relevance for it in our age of digital communication. Through video and sound installations, the failures of digital environments to provide adequate platforms of communication are critiqued.
"We were talking- about the love that's gone so cold
Seeking to understand how we navigate text-based forms of contact, the work addresses the removal of human exchange intrinsic to these forms of communication. Questioning the effects this has on interpersonal relations, it reveals the increased distancing and loss that occurs as a result.
