Art of War – 2006 – 07

Documentary war footage
Art of War comprises two video works that explore how representations of violence are constructed through contemporary media and how we interpret them from our safe consumerist perspective. The works blur the convergent discourses that inform them: the war movie, the warzone documentary, the news clip, overlaying them with questions of authenticity and complicity. In a warzone where lasers are substituted for real bullets and blood and guts are imaginary, the gaze of an outsider provokes performance and curiosity in those who would play at war.

‘Michael Jackson 4 Ways’

– one of a series of video art works… to critically and creatively consider how reality and simulated environments both construct and reconfigure our ideas about the nature of subjectivity and identity.
