The neighbourhood tire swing in a windstorm, a relative's white dishware on hand-embroidered cotton, and patterns of sunlight on the kitchen counter- I look slowly and with longing, and my videos are a reaction to this fixated gaze. I dissect and chop the video frame, and discreetly reassemble it, following pre-determined procedures, to play infinitely on a loop. The temporality of the video medium turns this act into a manipulation of space and time. With these manipulations, I play with technical and formal aspects of photography, film, and video, such as figure and ground, depth of field, point of view, and composition. I work with the indexical connotations of camera-based works in the way that I seize singular instances, even when the scene before the lens is purposefully contrived. Each video might seem to preserve a moment from a world that is constantly in flux. There are cracks in the illusion of the composite video all along, such as vertical breaks in a sky scape or the movement of a blade of grass exposing symmetry. By gradually laying bare the mechanics of my works, detailed looking rewards the viewer while simultaneously revealing the immateriality of video. I explore the balance between an image's construction and its representational ability while asking which is more real. The image surface can be disassembled but the subject remains depicted. If my work tells viewers that they have been deceived, they also ask how much it matters, if at all.
