Make Believe
2012
HD Video
Full Duration: 1 hour and 5 minutes. Sample duration (shown here): 4 minutes

Through a kaleidoscopic lens Make Believe runs on a loop of an hour and 5 minutes, continually morphing between the distinguishable dancing limbs of a young girl (legs, hair, torso), and an abstraction of patterns formed from the little girls costume. Created over several artist residencies in America, the video explores ideas of the fantasy and deception of life as both child and adult. Masked within a bottomless black void the haunting video explores human aloneness, the absurdity of adult existence, and the inability to reconnect with the innocence of childhood.

Make Believe was first exhibited in solo exhibition of the same title at Anna Pappas Gallery in Melbourne from the 12th July - 18th of August 2012.
