  2. Vidéo: Sabrina Ratté
    Musique: Le Révélateur
    -2010

    "Mirages" est une vidéo qui est née lors d'une collaboration avec Le Révélateur (myspace.com/circeotones). Avant tout une projection live lors de ses concerts, la vidéo s'est raffinée de plus en plus à travers la pratique et la performance. La nature des images s'est transformée naturellement afin de se fondre les unes dans les autres et ainsi former ce que je crois être un tout cohérent et organique.

    "Mirages" est une exploration ensoleillée de la nostalgie qui prend forme dans les images évocants un monde de science-fiction.

  3. THE MACHINIST’S LAMENT, 2014
    HD VIDEO
    Running Time: 17 min, 47 seconds

    Factories will bring back money.
    Factories will bring back jobs.
    Factories will make everything fit again.
    In factories, everyone has their place.

    Western industrial production is a site of magical thinking: an old history that will never return, an idealized construction that never really was. It's impossible to know what the true costs would be if it were to return - societal, environmental, and psychological – and yet, entire political campaigns are built around this.

    This piece speculates on re-industrialization, and is a sequel to my 2013 video, Safety First (Bad, Don’t Touch, Mercy!). Like its prequel, it posits a non-specific future populated by female factory workers. The geometric aesthetics of power and the romance of industrial-era alienation, are paired with theoretical and fictional texts about alternate social economies.

    Video footage was shot in Ohio, animation and soundtrack by the artist. Voiceover text sources include Industrial supply catalogs, OSHA safety manuals, Monique Wittig’s Les Guerilleres, and Adorno’s Minima Moralia.

    AURAE, is a video based on a photograph manipulated digitally and processed through electronic signals. The architectural forms constantly falling apart and their changing textures evoke the ephemeral nature of perception, and suggest the idea of time and its influence on this perception.
