Transmission - 2012

Transmission challenges the viewers perception of linear time, and proposes that perceived time is often plastic. As the viewer watches the piece, the frequency of familiar objects within the frame expands and contrasts, without a discernible loop beginning or end. What is assumed to be real time is distorted and stretched, through an apparent lengthening of event durations within the frame.

Lines appear and fade away, producing slowly fading after-images, causing the viewer to see colors that are not present in the video itself. Occasionally, large blurred lines pop onto the screen for only a moment, perceptually in sync with the audio. What is perceived is often a product of the perception, and not a reality being perceived.

The visual order of Transmission serves as a super-structure, with an infinite time frame. Meanwhile the audio functions within a micro-structure, moving between small passages exploded out into minute long phrases. The sound I produce for my video works provides the viewer with a suspension. No longer is the viewer self-aware, but rather seeing themselves engaged in relation to the piece they are standing in front of. This is not a passive perception of visual and sonic material, but rather an engagement with the experience of one’s own perception perceiving visual and sonic motion playing against one another.
