Three-channel HD video and sound installation
Duration: 21 minute loop
Aspect Ratio: 16:9 (1920x1080)
The installation ‘After Burning’ was created for my solo exhibition at The Glasgow Project Room in January 2013.
The two large screens – one portrait format, one landscape format – lean against the structural elements in The Glasgow Project Room gallery space, a pillar and a beam and have the same dimensions: 300 cm x 170 cm. The small screen lies at an angle on the floor and is 170 cm x 95 cm.
The three video loops – ‘Red Flicker’, ‘Forest Fire’ and ‘Driving Past. Looking Inside. Looking Outside’ have different durations, creating an asynchronous non-repeating pattern in the installation. The ‘Red Flicker’ video has the same duration and is synched with the soundscape (21 minutes) and changes/intensifies over time in relation to the sonic experience.
On this occasion I was working with and digitally transformed a short sound clip that was recorded in connection with the moving image to create a sonic experience that changed in mood over time – a journey through time, place and memory.
