Freshly cut glass


2018

eight screen video and sound installation
duration variable


Freshly cut glass is an eight channel video installation with a single channel sound track. The work explores the experience of fragmented presence in an increasingly digitised and networked society. Across five of the screens, narratives and experiences of a character in the first person scroll past one line at a time in simple white text on a black background. Concerning the contemporary and networked 'I', the narratives are almost, but not quite, able to be read simultaneously. The subject of the streams of thought are intended to articulate simultaneous developments in linear thought, and are focused on the body, the self image, anxiety and the texture of everyday experience. Along with the  text videos are looping shots from Bergen city, and images of photogram prints of pieces of glass.
