This installation made up of structures reminiscent of the liminal spaces found in a house (the attic, the space under the stairs, and the corridor). Each structure contains psychological implications that manifest in objects charged with signs of the past.
This installation that examines the notion of a body that is absent and a mind that is sedated. The work is about the isolation of the individual as they absorb themselves into the narrative constructs and images of television; and plays with suspension of disbelief, by creating an uncanny association between the situation of the animated character, and the participation of the viewer.
This installation consists of three robotic puppets that are electronically linked through a behavioural program that allows them to interact with the viewer. It was conceived and created in collaboration with robotic artist Jessica Field.
Tied to a Tree is a puppet production about a young boy grappling with the inner conflict that arises between his desire to become someone else and the consequences he must face, when his choice could destroy his only friend.
