The Work v2.0, 2011
mixed media installation

The Work v.02 raises questions about the capacity to communicate experience to one another and the function of memory both for the individual and those involved in an event from a distance. The artist composes fragments of a narrative into a coherent structure. This piece functions both on a visual as on an acoustic level: the strange combination of the quality of the sound and the confidence of the technology producing a renewed consideration of what we trust – ourselves or our machines.
