In The Project Space

Are Closer Than and Waiting are part of a recent series that combines footage of my mother’s hospital room as she lay dying, with cellphone clips that my teenage daughter shoots. I’ve overlaid these using two projectors, creating a physical superimposition where brightness obliterates while darkness reveals. These long, predominantly uneventful loops push past boredom to assume a state where time seems to slow down, yet also drifts past without notice. I am exploring the difficulty of being present and still during times of transition.
