Eternal Return is a choreographed mixed reality exhibition interrogating the materiality of memory through replicas from earth’s deep past stretching into a speculative Post – Anthropocene future.

Image libraries, previous thoughts and experiences are hyper-connected to the physical world. The analogue touch of an unseen performer is placed next to a 3.5 billion year old fossil and evolving digital code, whilst a voice inside headphones earns your trust in a process of negotiated agency and guidance.

The work puts focus on the resonance between a system and its inhabitants, drawing attention to the connectivity and interdependence that exists within any given environment.

An Elegy proposes the hypothesis that we carry so much film inside us that we need very little external stimuli to create a cinematic experience. Visitors enter a darkened room in which they experience projections that play, not on the screen in front of them, but in their own consciousness.
Appropriated footage from film history alternates with periods of whiteouts and blackouts in the screening room. These periods of visual absence direct the viewer's attention inwards where cinematic history merges with their own archive of lived experience.

What happens when historical events float free of their bibliographic and museum anchorings?

Symphony – The Mnemosyne Revolution reflects on the museum as phenomenon, its tradition and its potential futures.

____________

Symphony consists of the potential sensory exchange between two untrained museum visitors. Receiving instructions through headphones, visitors are trained to internalize their memories of the exhibition and to observe induced, yet felt, bodily sensations in the process of experiencing art. The artwork is intended to be both a document of the artworks in the exhibition as well as a score for remembering a series of defined emotions that in the future may be forgotten and disappear.

that which is not me, but of which I am a part

Garden of Ghost Flowers is an artificial life form that grows from the resonance of its human visitors.

This changing and evolving artwork is inspired in part by the sociological concept of Resonance*, a mode of interacting with the world that is not based in control, and by the endangered non-photosynthesizing plant Monotropa Uniflora, also known as the Ghost Flower. 

The virtual ghost flower is dependent upon networks of human qualities, such as listening, caring, and adapting, as a source of energy. Like a desert, a mountain, or a forest, each group of visitors provides its own unique biotope from which the flower grows. Each life cycle of the flower lasts for 20 minutes and can accommodate up to 25 people.
